Hold down the Fn key and press F8 at the same time. This should do the trick.

When my computer says check signal cable what does it mean?


Your monitor is telling you that it thinks it is not receiving a video signal from the computer. You need to verify which of three components is not working, the computer, the cable, or the monitor.

The first thing to do, obviously, is to check that the cable connecting the computer to monitor is good. You will need some extra components to do the checking. I'm going to assume that the cable is detachable at both ends.
First you can try replacing the cable with different one. If the replacement cable works, then it's the cable.
Secondly, you can try different monitor. If you connect this in place of the first monitor, and it works, it's a faulty monitor (needs repairing or replacing).
Third try a different computer with the original cable and monitor, if it all works it looks like the video on your PC has malfunctioned. (This might also be your conclusion if a system comprising a different cable and monitor fails to work with the original PC)
You might just be able to verify the cable by testing the connectivity of all the wires in the cable with a meter, if you knew the pin out of the cable at both ends.
If you find out the computer is getting a signal out, there could be many causes for that, each having its own solution (or not as the case may be)

My used DEL 2300 MP doesn't seem to be compatible with my Compaq PResario CQ60. It keeps searching for a signal? Any suggestions?


Decrease the screen resolution of your computer to the minimum possible value and check.
Probably the projector does not support the resolution of the laptop. With a lower resolution it might work.

I am trying to connect a MacBook AIR to a Dell 3400 MP and all I get is searching for signal... I have the USB cable connected..


Dell projectors work best with windows operating system. Replacing the projector would still not resolve the problem since it is not compatible with Macintosh computers. I recommend that you contact Macintosh and ask if there is an available patch to resolve the issue.

The display on screen says check digital cable... i replace the one which is working with another monitor


If it's giving you a missing signal and you've tried a different cable it would be in your best interest to try a different monitor. It's very possible that you have a either a bad graphics card or a bad monitor.

Power comes on - screen says NO SIGNAL. Have already checked cable line with another TV and it works fine. Have we hit something on the remote that has put it into that mode?


The only reason your TV would say "no signal" is that it's searching an input for a signal and not finding it. That being said, Yes, You've probably hit the "input" button on your remote. Easily fixed by selecting a different input or changing the channel on the television.

We use Power Point with our 4100 dell and many times when a new screen is selected the projected image shakes 2 or 3 times in less than a second. Then is fine untill a new selection is made. Almost looks...


This called syncronisation. try different resolutions on pc/laptop. it looks like projector does not like source's resolution.
Check the cable, and connectios!!!

Searching for signal


The problem is with the computer, not the projector.
There are special function keys, generally with blue lettering along the top row of your keyboard. Find the one that looks like a double screen or says "CRT". Also locate the blue function key [FN], probably on the lower left on the keyboard.

Press, and hold, the [FN] key and press the [CRT] key to change to dual screen.... and wait for several seconds for the projector to detect it. If it still doesn't work after you have waited, press the key sequence again (there are 3 different screen settings).

1. Computer Screen only (normal)
2. Projector Screen only
3. Both Computer AND Projector screens
