Have you tried booting off of your restore disc? During startup you can boot from a CD, DVD, or thumb drive by holding "C" while booting. You can also try starting into recovery system by pressing "R" and "command" keys while booting, but I'd reccommend trying the bootable disc method first. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Macbook Pro just shuts down
This sometimes happens when you have it plugged in to an electrical socket as well. I have recently been having this problem and I have a brand new battery, so it's likely the logic board. If you're still having the problem, and the monitor image shows weird fragmentation on startup, it's likely to be the logic board that needs to be replaced.

Your Macbook should automaticaly find the best resolution, if everything was OK. Is there any HDMI input on the dell projector? What projector is it? Is there is an HDMI input, you can use a HDMI to mini DVI cable: better picture and sound than VGA, and will probably solve your problem

SOURCE: MacBook won't start up.
If you have your Mac OS X Install disc, insert it into the drive.
Restart the computer and hold down "C" while booting.
Choose your language.
Select "Disk Utility" from the "Utilities" in the menu bar.
Select your Macbook's hard drive in the left sidebar.
Click the "First Aid" tab thats along the top of the viewer window.
Click "Verify Disk" (not verify disk permissions)
If this shows errors click "Repair Disk"
Once completed close the Disk Utility window.
Restart the computer.
If this fails to fix it as well then your next option would most likely be recovering your files from the macbook either by booting into target disk mode (hold down T at startup) and transferring them via a firewire cable, or removing the hard drive and hooking it up to another Mac to get the files. Then do a clean install of Mac OS X using your installation discs.

Power the machine down. Press the power button to turn it on. After you hear the startup chime, press and hold the shift key. This will trigger an extended file system check and a safe boot. Continue holding the shift key down until you see the spinner, then you can release it. If it doesn't boot completely after this, you will have to bring it in to an Apple-certified tech for repair.
