I do the same thing sometimes. i dont think you can have the same on both screens so what i do is extend my desktop on to the projector in display properties. do you know how to do that? that might be the default when you hook up something for a second monitor. what are you trying to do?

Hi. My Dell Latitude E6410 does not recognize a Epson Projector, model EMP-7800. How can I solve the problem?


Hi
you must tell the laptop to display out on the projector,
how to do that?! you must toggle the display path
Generally, there is button ( with Fn keys ) have dusplay screen sample on it, use it with Fn to toggle the display
Display have 3 modes:
  1. laptop screen
  2. outside LCD projector or monitor,
  3. or bith 1 + 2

you can press the keys 3 times ( at maximum ) to have the display on both laptop screen and projector

Good Luck

My name is Chris. I connected my Dell Lat. D600 to a projector for a power point presentation but it refused to connect to the projector. Please what do i do to make my slide show else my school will fail...


you need to right click on the desktop and click properties, when display settings appear, enable the second display and you will then be able to show output on the projector. if you choose mirror displays whatever is shown on your laptop is copied to the projector. if you choose extend the display you would have to drag your power point over to the other screen, same as if you were to move the window out of the way

Hello, i can't connect my projector to dell n5010 laptop. no device find when connect projector to laptop. please help me.


The following is from page 69 of the 354-page Dell Technology Guide for the N5010

General Keyboard Shortcuts

<Fn><F8>
Displays icons representing all currently available display options (display only, external monitor or projector only, both display and projector, and so on). Highlight the desired icon to switch the display to that option


So the solution is just plug the VGA cable from the projector into the N5010 laptop's VGA port and then press <Fn><F8> (Function and F8 keys together).

He display through a projector is much reduced from the projector


The screen resolution on your data projector may not be able to display the screen resolution set by your laptop.
Adjust your laptop's screen resolution say 1024X768 first then adjust it up or down to see the effect.
You can do this from the Control Panel - Display - Settings. There is no need to reboot the laptop for the settings to take place.

Laptop computer connected to projector.


When the projector displays the background image and the lcd displays the desktop as normal you can drag the open windows to the left or right and display them on the projector. it sounds like this laptop has an internal video card. If you right click on the desktop it might give you options to configure the display settings for the video card. Not sure how you will get to it if it does not show up on the right click menu. Probably through the start menu or in the control panel there should be somewhere to change the settings for the video card. This will no be under the display settings though.

But once you find your dual display options you will be able to change it to make both displays the same
