Question about Dell PC Laptops

He display through a projector is much reduced from the projector

Hooking the computer up to the projector the display is about one third the size of the fled available through the projector.

Other computers tried are OK, so it appears to be an internal setting somewhere on my Dell 410.

Can you direct me to that setting please?

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.

How do I reduce the size of text on the computer?


If that change relates to the size of text in the browser, you might want to press [CTRL][-] (Control minus) to reduce it or [CTRL][+] to increase it.
If on the other hand, you are concerned with the size of the text in other windows, you will have to open the Graphic Propertires and adjust the display parameters (font size to default).

Cannot get the Projector to see my emachines D620 Laptop screen. Press FN+F^ my computer screen goes dark but nothing shows at the projector tested the projector worked fine with other laptop


To check if the external video port on the laptop by connecting an external monitor to the laptop and see if it works. If it does work then the video port is OK and the only thing I can think of is :-
What is the highest resolution that the projector can display?
Is the video resolution on the laptop set higher than the projector's maximum resolution, if so reduce the screen resolution on the laptop.

Can't work projector with computer.


When you connect the data projector to the laptop, power up the projector then the laptop. The laptop will automatically switch the video to the projector.
If you power up the laptop first the you need to switch the video output to the external video port by press and hold the Fn key and then press one of the functions keys that has a screen symbole on it, by repeating this again you can toggle between the projector and the LCD screen, even having the both displayed at the same time.
If you still have a problem, then the screen resolution is set too high and the video won't display on the projector, reduce the screen resolution to 1024x768 to see if it works, if not you may need to reduce it further.

How to connect laptop to projector?


Data projectors have a video cable and you connect it to the 15pin blue video connector on the laptop. Then you power up the projector and then power up the laptop. The laptop should automatically dirvert the video information to the data projector.

If the image produced from the projector is not clear, then you will need to reduce the screen resolution on your laptop using Control Panel - Display - Settings.

Video projector from a laptop


You can connect the Projector to the VGA Port of the Notebook which is a Blue Port which can be seen at the rear of any desktop computer to which we usually connect the Monitor to.

The VGA Port will have 15 holes on it and should be in Blue colour.

You can locate the VGA Port at the Left side of the Notebook.

Locate the port according to the information available below :

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00726464.pdf

Refer to page number 14 (18 of 32) in the manual.

Once you connect the Projector to this port, hold the FN key and press F4 key once.

This wil get the Display on the Projector connected to the Notebook.

If you just want the display only on the Projector, hold the FN key and press the F4 again.

Now, if you want the display back on the LCD of the Notebook, Press the FN + F4 third time.

Hope this helps..

Projector Picture Size


It also depends on the Graphic caru d that you have in the notebook, as ATI, Nvidia and intel all handel the output slightly differently. After you project image out to projecter,you have option to set,it is in display setting , under resolution .You can choose to clone or run two independent displays, ie the notebook at its natural 15.4" display, and then the projector at what ever its natural res is. To get this to work properly you need to do this in extended mode, not clone mode. This has advantages and disadvantages depending on your view point
Hope this helps a bit
bye.Takecare.
