Make sure you have all drivers and software necessary for the projector installed on your laptop. You can find them on viewsonic's website. Also go to Control Panel>Display>Connect to a Projector and insure all settings are correct. Let me know if you run into problems.

Check the Microsoft knowledge base for a "workaround" for this issue. Try doing a search for "device not recognized" there should be several steps to correct this issue. However this may be due to compatibility with your projector and the usb port drivers. Contact the manufacturer or go to his website for driver and usb information on your Projector ability to connect to your Acer. Good luck!
I am using a Viewsonic lcd projector with my new Acer Aspire One. I did not have connectivity off the bat. Here's what I did:
1. Downloaded driver (unsigned, not the signed version worked - ie not os-specific) for the lcd projector to the Acer. Restart Acer.
2. With lcd projector connected to Acer, toggle function key & F5. But then, continue holding down the function key. A screen pops up with icons for laptop, laptop/monitor, dual monitor, and lcd projector. You continue to hold down the function key and then press the F5 key to move to the desired device.
I had to repeat the same process to restore my Acer screen to the original proportion when not using lcd projector.
I'm not sure if both steps 1 and 2 are necessary, but I did it simultaneously, so I'm not sure of the origin of success.
ok ... try this, switch on your aspire laptop, then u switch on your LCD multimedia projector... then u press the F5 key on your keypad(on your aspire) , HP, and many other manufacturers uses that key for the LCD,CRT,projector extension slot while other laptop manufacturers like Gateway e.t.c uses the F4 key for the extension... after you have done that... your aspire screen goes dim then it should show on your LCD...but if not then switch off your laptop with your LCD multimedia projector ON then swicth on your laptop it will automatically work with it ok.....
this applies to other laptops and projectors or LCD s ...
Usually you can use a VGA connection cable to connect your computer with a projector. They also have inputs for s-video and RGB but these are much rarer on computers. Once you have connected the projector press the key on your keyboard that looks like a square with two lines on either side (mine is FN+F4) This will shuffle through different setups (mirrored to screen, extended to screen and back to normal) if this doesn't work try plugging in the vga cable and restarting the computer with the projector on.
