You will need to set your computer to the correct display properties.
This you can do by either going to presentation mode.
Alternatively,
on Window XP you can simply go on to your desktop and right click > go to properties>go to setting> press display 2 and set the screen resolution as per your projectors resolution and enjoy.
( for information: display1 is the resolution meant for your computer).

Toshiba satilite C6550 has rainbow lines on half my screen the other half is fine ?


Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the rainbow lines, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same rainbow lines it means your video card inside the computer has the issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Image set up of screen is only half of the monitor


If you v-size is already at 100% then the issue is with the picture being sent to the monitor. Based upon what kind of input you have for the monitor there is a number of different ways to fix this. I will assume you are using the monitor with a desktop computer. If this is for XP, then there is a simple fix as follows, adjusting your display properties:
Right-click on your desktop background and then click on "Properties" this will open up a new window. Select the "Settings" tab, then drag the green arrow in the "Screen Resolution" field to the desired setting. Since you have a "widescreen set-up" you more than likely have a resolution where the first number is about twice the second number...they should be close to even to have a square image (bigger numbers show more detail than smaller numbers).
Hope this helps!

I have a 204b moniter that the lower half of the screen faded to black then shows two half screens that are filled with so many vert lines that you can't see whats on the screen.


the screen is toast. if its black and not showing whats suppose to be on the other half.if you tried restarting the computer and unplugging the monitor and it is still happening then there is nothing to do. monitors are not built to last long, the cheap ones. it is good to get one with a good warranty because the pixels go out.

Monitor is showing bottob half display and upper half is blackout


Hate to say it, but time for a new monitor... will cost you WAY more to fix than to pop-by a garage sale and grab a new monitor.

(It's not even worth a repair-persons time to do it...)

Acer screen is black or blurry


If you've connected an external monitor to your computer and the image is coming up fine then that means your video card on the motherboard is good.

The only other parts it could be is the LCD Flex cable that connects to the LCD screen to the motherboard, the LCD Inverter that powers the LCD screen or the LCD screen itself. Usually you can find a used screen that is complete with all those components on ebay.

Screen turned black


your monitor got a hardware problem:
1) the LVDS controler board out of work, only change or repair it could be fixed.
2) if you can see some show like smaller signal detect windows in the centre of screen a very short time (bright flashing one time), this is inverter board damaged or worn lamps, thay all need repair or replace
hope give you some idea. please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks!

Projector shows only 50% of the computer screen


If you can bring up the settings menu, go to the magnification setting and reset to 1X, you won't see part of the menu either and have to guess at the setting, but it will pop back to full screen when you get it. It will revert so memorize where the setting is and how to fix it when you can't see the menu.
