Try fn + f8, then wait and see if the projector detects the port (15 seconds or so) if no change, try Fn+F8 a 2nd time

Hello I have a Dell 1209S and my laptop cannot connected, I am using win8 and with other laptop with win7 I do not have problems. Can be this a problem with the resolution?


There is a dell 109S but no model like you listed. It does say it is compatible with windows 8.1 So it must be the settings or the function key on the laptop.

When i connect projector to computer it just says searching and my presentation wont show up on screen


Hello.

Look at your computer's function (F) keys. See which one has either a screen symbol or the words "CRT/LCD". Typically, it's the F4 or F8 key.

Hold down the Fn key and press that F key and after the first, second or third try, the presentation on the computer should display on your projector's screen.

Hope this helps.
