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

Unable to play Apple PowerBook Keynote Application slides


I believe the problem is that your PowerBook does not have the proper drivers for this projector. The maximum resolution on it should be 1600 x 1200, however Dell only certifies this with (and provides drivers for) Windows XP and Vista. I have been unable to find Macintosh drivers for it, and think it unlikely they exist. Without the exact drivers, your computer will find the best match. That usually means you cannot use advanced features, such as higher resolutions, with the projector. Sorry I don't have better news for you. If you perhaps copied your presentation over to a Windows laptop and connected it, it might work. I'm honestly rather disappointed in Dell for not providing Mac drivers for this.

How to display Monitor image from mac book through samsung SP-H03 pico projector?


It's not that easy. The SP-H03 accept VGA input through the D-Sub connector. Mac book does not have this output directly. So you need another piece of adapter for the MAC Book to provide VGA output. It would come out from your Mac "Display Port /orThunderbolt port".
Another way is to use a USB to VGA adapter for Mac.

How do i hook my samsung spl300 projector to my mac book pro


You can connect your Projector with the Mac Book Pro; However the problem is, mac comes with a DVI connector and your projector uses a VGA one.
You need to buy a DVI to VGA adapter from Apple if you don't have one already. You can buy it from the local apple stores or an online apple store.
There are two types of DVI-VGA adapters available (Please check the below images and see which one fits your Mac and go for it). Apple DVI to VGA Display Adapter
Apple Mini DVI to VGA Adapter Once you decided which one you need, go to an apple store or online apple shop and buy one.
Hope This helps.best regardsNextDoorNerd

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 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?

Why is my projection dark and muddy compared to the brightness on my computer screen?


John here, customer advocate at Dell headquarters. If you can nvigate to the On Screen Display Menu, you should see an "all images" section on the main menu. There you will find brightness, contrast, color temp, white intensity, and gamma controls. You should be able to make adjustments from that menu to sharpen and brighten the image.
