PowerPoint Slide Show View Distortion

PowerPoint 2003 was functioning as designed on my laptop until I connected to a projector (make unknown) to show a presentation. The slide show view converted the image in 4:3 to a distorted view elongated side to side(16:7?). Since then I have not been able to re-establish the proper functioning in slide view for any presentations. I have removed and re-installed PowerPoint (twice) and that has not fixed the problem. Is there a simple solution?

Well not knowing what is causing the problem, can i suggest a bit of an extreme but very effective method?

You will want to restart your pc before logging into the other account. That will allow you to rename it without problems.
Login to your laptop using an administrator account. Rename your profile to oldprofile.old or similar.

It sounds like its one of those lovely settings Microsoft likes to save in the \applicaiton data\ area of a profile.

Having problems getting my powerpoint slide to show from the laptop onto the screen. Not sure what the function key is?


try Fn key with F5 or F8. depends on your model of laptop.
Look for the screen symbol on one of the function keys and try pressing that once and wait several seconds to see the screen changing video. Then press again if not correct.

If nothing is appearing on the projector, then connect a lcd monitor on the laptop and try the function keys intil it works thyen swap the monitor for the projector, and start the input scan for the active video input.

My dell d630 laptop wont recognize my infocus lp70+ remote control and I can't advance my powerpoint slides with the remote control


Here's what the User's Manual says:


Using the Remote Control

To advance PowerPoint slides with the projector's remote, you

must connect the USB cable on the projector's computer cable to

the computer. See page 8 for more information.

Point the remote control at the projection screen or at the front or

rear of the projector (not at the computer). The range for optimum

operation is about 30 feet. If you point the remote at the

projection screen, the distance to the screen and back to the projector

must be less than or equal to 30 feet. For best results, point

the remote directly at the projector.


If you are displaying presentations in Microsoft® PowerPoint®,

you can use the remote's Previous and Next buttons to navigate

through your presentation while in Slide Show mode.

Hitachi cp-s240 remote question


Hitachi data projectors are able to function as a mouse using either the USB port or the control port located on the back of the projector.

However, they are not intended to be used as a remote presenter. This means that although you can use the remote as a mouse, you will not be able to change slides in a full screen slide show using powerpoint.

I recommend the Targus remote presenter for this purpose. This device will function as a mouse, pointing device, and will allow you to change slides in powerpoint. In addition, it's inexpensive, wireless, and small enough to easily fit in your pocket.

I have a problem with displaying power point presentation


Hello, Chris.

I'm not certain if this was already tried, but here goes:

If you look at you keyboard function (F) keys, you'll see a symbol or the words "CRT/LCD". On my laptop, it is F8, but could be different on yours.

When you connect an external screen to your laptop, if the laptop information doesn't show on the external screen, press your Fn key plus that function key with the symbol or words.

Normally, when you press once, twice and three times, you toggle through various options: your laptop screen only, your external screen only and both screens.

Hope this helps.

Gateway laptop 450ROG video issue when using a projector


Honestly from the information you have listed it sounds like the issue is with your projector, not your laptop. If your laptop was having display issues it would be consistent on anything it was attempting to output display to, such as your monitor.

The projector sounds like its out of focus and possibly has a bad back light in it, I would suggest contacting the manufacture for a possible resolution.
