Laptop keeps reverting to 800x600 resolution

I have an Acer Travelmate 4730 running on Windows XP which I recently connected to a projector for a powerpoint presentation. My problem is that now it keeps reverting to 800x600. I can change it through properties to 1024x768 but when I next logon it reverts back to 800x600 every time. When logging on it initially look right but then the screen does a really quick flicker and it has changed to 800x600. Please help. Thanks in advance. Shelley

If you don't need the connection to the projector...remove any drivers or settings related with it ...the problem is that your settings are overwritten by that programs or drivers that you used..
in the worse case reinstall

Try holding down the Function key (Fn), then pressing F5. Wait a few seconds. On most laptop, each press of the F5 key will toggle between laptop display only, projector only and Dual (same image on both - my favorite).

You'll probably see a little Monitor-shaped icon on the F5 key. It's possible it's another function key - on Dells it's usually F8.

You don't probably, your laptop screen is not exactly becoming magnified, the resolution is being lowered to match the maximum resolution of your projector which is only 800x600. They are setup as "cloned" together. You could try setting up an "extended desktop" rather than having the projector "cloned" with your laptop screen, that way you can change the resolution (within their allowed limits) of both displays independently. To do this, Right click on desktop and select video setting or the control panel of whatever video card you have. If you can set up an extended desktop, it is here that you'll be able to do it.

I am trying to hook a laptop to the projector


before you hook it up set the resolution on the laptop to a lower one (1024x768).

Connect the laptop to the projector

Then on the laptop hold down the FN key whilst pressing the correct key (F5 on an Acer) the key usually has two screens on it.

Doing that set of keys repeatedly will cycle through the following

LAPTOP ONLY
LAPTOP PLUS EXTERNAL DISPLAY
EXTERNAL DISPLAY ONLY

For some older projectors you may have to reduce the resolution even further eg (800x600)

Hope this gives you the information you need

Connecting to laptop


Try changing the refresh rate on your graphics drivers to 60 or 70 hz on both your laptop screen and the projector. Do this at the desired resolutions as well.

This is an SVGA projector with a max resolution of 800X600. Even though it can accept higher resolution signals, they are scaled down to 800X600 which causes degradation and artifacting of the displayed image. Obviously setting your computer's resolution to 800X600 will result in the best image the projector is capable of. Standard definition video (480i, 480p, S-Video or composite) signals should also display very well. High definition signals like 720p and 1080i get scaled down to 800X600 with the same issues as a higher resolution computer signal.

One thing that can have a dramatic impact on the quality of your display if you are using Windows XP or Vista is tuning your ClearType settings here:
