Have you opted to switch display to the printer using the function key with either F4 or F5, you will see the laptop symbol with a square next to it.

I think option 2 showing two screens with no 1 in them works best with Toshiba.

If you try this and fail, you can look at the From your desktop, Proerties, Settings, Display - Option Plug and Play!

Let me know how you get on with the above.

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.

My projector won't project anything. the computer recognizes the projector, but the projector does not recognize the computer. also when i turn on the projector the benq logo doesn't show.


Disconnect all inputs to the BENQ and power on. Do the lights come on as per normal operation. Does the lamp come on when the power button is pressed. Does anything show when the menu is selected.

The screen resolution on your laptop may be set too high for the data projector. Try reducing the laptop's screen resolution down to 1024 X 768.

Nothing work it's on but it's not detectable with PC touch ver


I don't know the model of system you are using. But before your system can detect the projector, you need to press some key conbinations.

for HP Laptops the key is Fn+F5 key
For Lenovo/IBM the key is Fn+F7 key.

Dell precision laptop, dell projector m2400 wont detect


Hello...the resolution on the laptop is too high...at least, from your description, that's what the problem sounds like. The projector is capable of 1024x768. Make sure the res on the laptop is set at or below that number. To set the res on the laptop, go into control panel and choose the display option...under settings menu, there will be a slider that you can move--when you move this, the computer will ask you if you want to keep this setting--choose yes. Also, make sure you power up the laptop first, then immediately after, power on the projector--this will help stop any syncing problems that might occur.--Hope I helped you!--Rick

I have the same problem with a Hitachi CP-X345 Multimedia Projector. My Acer Aspire 3630 Laptop cannot be detected but it works without incident with a Dell Vostro 1500; just plug and play. Desktop settings to second screen doesn’t seem to help.
