The next time you post a question, please also give us the model of your projector, and what exacly is the problem you are experiencing. I have read the comments and your question and now assume your problem is:

a) You cannot plug the projector into the PC. I will have to know what the connection on the projector looks like to help you find an adapter that fits into yor PC.

b) You can plug it in, but it doesn't work. If you are working on a laptop, this could be solved easily. There often is one Fn button that enables projectors. If it doesn't work, hold it for a while.

If it;s a desktop PC, or the Fn button doesn't work, you will either have to open the Windows control panel or the control panel that came with your graphics card.
In Windows control panel navigate to display settings or something like that. There you should able to select the projector as a second screen, and select the extend desktop option.
In the graphics control panel, for example Catalyst that comes with ATi cards, you can also select a clone desktop option. Extend desktop creates another desktop on the projector, so you can have multiple programs open at one time.
Clone desktop selects one resolution for both screens, and displays the same things on both.
Which one you select is your preference.

I hope this helps,

What is the brand and exact model number of your projector? Are you getting an error on the display like S-video or out of range?

You may wanna try isolating the problem, please try the steps below:

1. Use a monitor first and make sure that the computer is giving out a display.
2. Check the screen resolution, make sure that the resolution set to the computer is supported by the projector.
3. Connect the projector to the computer and press the menu.
4. Make sure to switch it to VGA if the projector is connected via VGA port/cable.

If the projector is connected via HDMI, set the menu to HDMI and you should have a display.

Hope it helps and have a great day!

How to get my keyboard back working on my desk top

1: if the keyboard has a round plug going into the computer, it is a PS/2 plug. Turn off your computer, unplug the keyboard, then plug it back in, making sure it is plugged into the correct place for the keyboard (and not the mouse). Then turn the computer back on.

2: If the keyboard has a USB plug, it is not necessary to turn off the computer first, just unplug the USB cable for a few seconds then plug the cable back into the computer. If it still doesn't work, try plugging the USB plug into another USB port on the same computer.

3: If neither option works, you may have a defective keyboard.

I tray to changing 3 new keyboards but still reads the problem. What's your problem?

OK what type of keyboard are you using Serial or USB? A serial type keyboard has a round end that plugs into the computer's PURPLE port (the Green Port is for the mouse).

A USB type keyboard has a flat end that plugs into one of the computer's usb ports.

If you are using a Serial (Round end) type keyboard, it is not Plug and Play (meaning you cannot unplug it or plug it in while the computer is running or it will not be recognized). You can only plug or unplug the serial keyboard when the computer is off. If you turn the computer off and plug it in good then reboot and you still have a problem then since you have tried 3 different keyboards, maybe the Purple Serial Port where the keyboard plugs into the computer is bad. Try a USB Type Keyboard.

A USB (Flat end) keyboard is Plug and Play. You can unplug and plug it while the computer is on. Also you have the luxury of plugging it into any one of the computer's usb ports.

I have a Dell computer and I want to switch only the computer out to my compaq is this possible I am trying and the monitor is not coming on

When you switch out the box, these are all the things that need to be plugged into the computer.

1. Black power cable
2. Keyboard - Some settings will not allow the computer to start without it plugged in
3. Monitor - If you have 2 spots on the back of your computer where this plug will fit, it will most likely be the lower one, if that does not work, turn off the computer, and re plug it into the other slot.

As long as you have these 3 plugged in your computer should start, if not, there may be hardware issues with the replacement computer.

Good Luck,

I've tried plugging in the camera to every USB port on my computer. The computer doesn't recognize that anything is plugged into the port! Tried rebooting with it plugged in, with it not plugged in,...

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Jarmy computer says keyboard failure

Hi there,

This means that your computer does not detect a keyboard plugged in it. Make sure the keyboard is properly plugged in. You may want to restart the computer and re-plug the keyboard. If this error still shows, try to plug the keyboard to another computer. If it works, then you have a defective keyboard port on your computer's board. You can just buy a usb keyboard just to be able to use your computer with keyboard again.

However, if when plugged into another computer and the keyboard failure still was detected, then you might have a defective keyboard that needs replacement.

Please let me know how this helps you. Thank you for using FixYa.

The speakers are plugged into the jack on the back of the computer. Ever since i hooked up the speakers only the right speaker one will work

Check that your plug is completely inserted. Normally the Left Channel works, as it is the channel on the end of the plug. If the plug is only partially plugged in, it will connect to the right channel signal from the computer.

Need instructions to hook up Logitech X-350 systen to computer or other devise

I take it you mean a Logitech X-530? There is no X-350...
It is designed as a PC speaker system. It has three 3.5mm plugs that plug into the three matching sockets on your computer.
If you don't have three audio sockets on your computer, it is because your computer is not 5.1 compatible. Just plug the green plug into your PCs audio output.
You can buy a 5.1 audio card relatively cheaply.
To hook up other devices: Use the green 3.5mm plug - you will only get stereo, not 5.1,CRID=2177,CONTENTID=10036

have you plugged anything else in to make sure the usb port is working? does the computer recognize the usb speakers when you plug the usb plug into the computer? do the speakers work on another computer? if you wiggle the usb wires around does it make a sound through the speakers? eliminate these questions so that we can move on to isolating the issue.
