Image bigger than screen

Projector: Epson S5

When I try to project a presentation on the screen, the image size is way bigger than the screen. I've tried zooming but it the minimum size is still bigger.
1. Do I need to change the resolution on my laptop?
2. Is there a control on the projector that can help this?

Try changing the keystone. Also you may have the projector too far away from the screen. Changing the resolution on your laptop will not solve that particular problem.

How is this product used? how much is the price?

this projector can be used to project an image on a screen placed in front of it, that is the same as what is fed to it from a camera, a PC, a dvd player, or any other input compatible video source gadget.
The price depends on where you buy it and if it is newish or used a lot.

I am trying to run a presentation from 2 computers into the projector. one pc as the display and one as the presenter, is this possible

If the projector has two RGB inputs (they will be blue & look like female serial ports and be marked input1 & input2 or possibly RGB1 & RGB2) then both PC's can be connected, but only one image from one of the PC's can be displayed at a time. To change between them use the "input" button on the projector or remote control to switch between RGB1 & RGB2. If your projector has only one RGB connector at the back it is still possible to use the video input for the second PC but you will need a special adaptor for the RGB cable from one of your PC's.

Screen image is distorted small using Epson EMP 821 with Latitude D620

Check Epson"s support site to see if there is a driver for the projector. Some projectors require a driver for the visual clarity, and lots of times the driver disc doesn't come with the projector, go figure, and don't ask me why.
