Hi, Yes it is possible but.... Your laptop version may either be using an NVidia or an ATI. If an NVidia, right click on any clear area of your desktop, click on Properties, (in Display Properties) Settings, Advanced, TwinView tab, Clone, Apply, OK, Yes (if you want to keep this setting), OK. Am not sure if it will work with the ATI version, right click on any clear area of your desktop, click on Properties, (in Display Properties) Settings, Advanced, Display, TV button, Primary (display only on projector) hope you have other setting like LCD + TV (display on both), Apply, Yes (if you want to keep this setting), OK. Your Canon LV-S3 Multimedia Projector's Native resolution is 800x600 max @ 1280x1024 Pixels. You may need to set your laptop to the lowest first and gradually work it up till the projector no longer can display, then back down one notch. You may also need to press on Fn + F8 a few times to check if you can switch displays: LCD, TV/projector, LCD + TYV/Projector. You can try either the S-video TV-out connector or the video connector (both at the back). Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

My name is Chris. I connected my Dell Lat. D600 to a projector for a power point presentation but it refused to connect to the projector. Please what do i do to make my slide show else my school will fail...

you need to right click on the desktop and click properties, when display settings appear, enable the second display and you will then be able to show output on the projector. if you choose mirror displays whatever is shown on your laptop is copied to the projector. if you choose extend the display you would have to drag your power point over to the other screen, same as if you were to move the window out of the way

Need to connect my dell laptop to a large screen projector using a computer video interface for vga and compatible computers I have a delllatitude d610 the interface is an inline2080

I assume you know how to connect the VGA cable and which function key is used to activate the second display. You will have problems if the laptop display size is not supported by the projector. Many older projectors will not work with wide screen laptops.
when you connect the projector, Just press the presentation mode on your keyboard, Fn + (Presentation Key), Sometimes F5 or F8!

Then you will see your desktop on the projector screen.hope this helps

Differing size display when using Dell 3200mp LCD projector

Once your display of the projector is set( all connection to computers via cables is done), then all the display settings remain with the source i.e. the laptop.

You will need to set all your laptops to the correct display properties. This you can do by either going to presentation mode or 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 laptop)

Please do rate this solution and Thanks for usinf FixYa!

Laptop computer connected to projector.

When the projector displays the background image and the lcd displays the desktop as normal you can drag the open windows to the left or right and display them on the projector. it sounds like this laptop has an internal video card. If you right click on the desktop it might give you options to configure the display settings for the video card. Not sure how you will get to it if it does not show up on the right click menu. Probably through the start menu or in the control panel there should be somewhere to change the settings for the video card. This will no be under the display settings though.

But once you find your dual display options you will be able to change it to make both displays the same

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, have you tried pressing Fn + F? keys on the notebook to cycle through the choices; notebook display, notebook display + external, external only. The F? key would be one of the function keys with the small monitor icon.

Additionally, you may want to lower not only the screen resolution but likewise with the screen refresh rates.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

Presentation mode is off...

I'm going to guess that you have a wide screen Dell laptop with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a default resolution of 1280X800. The wide screen is great BUT most presentation grade projectors do not have a native (pixel for pixel) 16:10 mode. Instead they still prefer a display input with a 4:3 aspect ratio like your old square CRT or standard definition TV. Why do they prefer a 4:3 input? Mainly because Powerpoint prefers to display a slideshow in a 4:3 mode. Because of this Dell, in their infinite wisdom, created the 'presentation mode' utility in an attempt to automatically convert the VGA output of your laptop from 16:10 to 4:3 on the fly. In my experience this is an annoyance at best and at worst can seriously impact the size and quality of the projected image.

The best thing you can do when you connect to a projector is ignore the presentation mode alert and manually set your laptop's resolution to 1024X768 for an XGA rated projector or 800X600 for an SVGA rated projector. This will cause your desktop to look stretched on your laptop but will give you by far the best projection image.
