Re: hooking projector

You will probably need a standard VGA cable. The ends look like the connection for a monitor. Take a look if you don't know what I'm talking about:

There should be a port on your laptop and one on the projector. After it's hooked up you might have to toggle between the projection settings or select the correct source on the projector. Normally, there is a source or input button on the projector. If the picture isn't showing up on the projector but is on the laptop or vice versa, you'll need to toggle between settings. On my dell, it is fn (function) and the F8 key but sometimes it's the F7 key or some other F? key, just look for the LCD/CRT on the function button or the picture of a monitor looking thing. This is only if you don't see the image from the projector. Hope this helps you out!

When I want to do a presentation, my computer could not project the image on the LCD projector. My laptop is Compaq 510.

You need to press the Function key (fn) and the corresponding "F key" with the projector hooked up and powered on. Such as F7
The F key should either have a picture of a monitor or the words LCD on it in the same color as the fn key. Usually it is blue.

My toshiba satellite l355 won't show the video through an epson multimedia projector. What is wrong?

Occasionally this happens if you have had the computer hooked to a TV. I have had to disable the existing icon in Catalyst Control, and reboot. It should then find the projector, unless you have it set to manually find. There are several ways you can enable the projector, but they all boil down to the computer has to find the projector connection before anything else will happen. If it thinks there is still a tv hooked up, it will not work with the projector.

He display through a projector is much reduced from the projector

The screen resolution on your data projector may not be able to display the screen resolution set by your laptop.
Adjust your laptop's screen resolution say 1024X768 first then adjust it up or down to see the effect.
You can do this from the Control Panel - Display - Settings. There is no need to reboot the laptop for the settings to take place.
