Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
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!
