Hi smithmollie,

There should be a "displays" icon Dell projector, Mac book Pro display problem - 67f8081.png in the top right portion of the menu bar where you can change the display mode to "Mirror Display" whenever you connect the projector.

If it's not there go to "System Preferences" > "Displays" > "Display" tab and put a checkmark next to "Show displays in menu bar".

Also you can go to "System Preferences" > "Displays" and leave it open while connecting the projector and change the settings to "Mirror Display" there.

Best regards,

Thomas

I have a new mac pro and I am trying to use it with a Dell LCD projector. It shows the homepage without any text and won't show anything else.


What do you mean by "shows the home page"? What home page?
Normally you will see your mac's desktop (or, on some models) you will see your desktop background without any icons. If that happens the projector is acting as an extended screen.
If you want to project exactly what you see on the laptop's make sure that mirroring is switched on in the monitors panel of system preferences.

Macbook recognizes dell projector, but not vice versa


Hello,
Your Macbook should automaticaly find the best resolution, if everything was OK. Is there any HDMI input on the dell projector? What projector is it? Is there is an HDMI input, you can use a HDMI to mini DVI cable: better picture and sound than VGA, and will probably solve your problem

Mac Probook, when connected to Dell projector models 2400 DLP or MP 4100, the image on screen flickers. I have heard that you need to change the frequency setting on the Mac. Is this true? If so, what...


When connecting to exterior projectors, the video settings can be difficult to set up correctly. Try swapping the monitor in the display system preference and sliding your stuff to the other monitor. This is kind of a pain but it does work sometimes. The more you play around with that system preference the more you will figure stuff out. It is also possible that the particular projector is providing feedback into your mac. Try it on another type of projector and see if the problem persists.

Mac driver need for dell projector


You shouldn't need a driver as long as the Mac video system resolution can be matched by the Dell projector. Considering you are using a Mac Pro I don't think this will be an issue. Have you tried it and it didn't work?
