Re: Toshiba projector

Change it to clone the display. It is probably set to extend your desktop not to clone.

We have a Toshiba TPB P5 projector that displays all menus, and shows the computer display fine at first, but as soon as the video changes (new page, new window) the projector shuts off and goes to...

Getting the lenovo m500 dlp projector to work

Solved ....when it projects it says to push Fn and F7 simultaneously for Lenovo laptops. The symbol for the F7 on Lenovo is the computer screen and keyboard plus a screen with a line attaching. On the Toshiba it is the F5 key. Pressing the Fn and F5 keys on the Toshiba simultaneously gives 5 box choices, the middle is CRT and the correct one to transfer from computer screen to projector.

Half of monitor screen shows on the projector.

You will need to set your computer to the correct display properties.
This you can do by either going to presentation mode.
on Window XP you can simply go on to your desktop and right click > go to properties>go to setting> press display 2 and set the screen resolution as per your projectors resolution and enjoy.
( for information: display1 is the resolution meant for your computer).

Please do rate this solution and Thanks for usinf FixYa!

Displays desktop background but nothing else

I discovered that my laptop supports two monitors and the projector was acting as monitor #2. By changing the priority of the monitors I have got the information I need on the screen, but now not on the laptop. However, I can work the two from the screen and that will suffice for the moment, until I can find a way of getting the information on both!

Hi Figburg

Press the Fn ( function button ) and while holding it down , press the button in your F-row with the 1 or 2 screens on it.

Should do the trick.

Toshiba laptop won't work with new optoma projector

-toggle the laptop display using the FN keys and F5 I believe. -lower laptop resolution to 800 x 600 -look in laptop display properties for lcd or external display settings, see if it (external crt) has to be enabled on the laptop first.
