When I connect my HP 6910P laptop to a projector or monitor, the outputted image is always in gray scaled. When the laptop is connected to my docking station, my left monitor (DVI) is colored but my right monitor (Analog) is all gray scaled. I attempted to re-install the video drivers twice, but the problem persists.

I have a HP Compaq 6910p with blue lines down screen ? can you help ? Please ; )


Hello there
I had this issue too with a Vaio i had. This means that there is a faulty connection between the ribbonconnecting your LCD monitor to the motherboard. Now, you can attempt to disassemble the PC and check the connection, but this would void your warranty and if you havent done something like this before, then i dont recommend it. What you should do is take it into your local service location to get this fixed.
I hope this helps. Thumbs up always appreciated.

How do I connect a projector to my G60


Hello

  1. Start by making sure the laptop and projector are both turned off before you start trying to make any connections.
  2. Locate the video cable -Usually your computer should have a svideo ort out. The projector should have either a hdmi or a RCA immput ports, thus you need a svieo to rca cable. Otherwise your laptop should have a VGA port oout where the projectorr should have a VGA port in.
  3. Make sure both ends are securely connected and tighten if necessary. Use a screwdriver or small pliers to tighten the connectors. A loose connection at either end will prevent you from displaying your presentation.
  4. Locate the audio cable and connect the audio cable included with the projector to the Audio Out on the laptop and Audio In on the projector. Make sure these connections are tight.
  5. Start your laptop and the projector. Make sure to check all connections to ensure they have been properly connected.
Really hope this can help you.

Kind regards
Andrea

Check the video output by connecting an external monitor to the laptop. If you get a normal image on the monitor the the laptop video output is OK.
Use a different video cable between the laptop and the projector.
Maybe your laptop resolution is set too high for the projector.
This maybe a dumb question, is the projector video input set correctly?
