You may want to try adjusting the screen resolution and then hitting the function + F8 (or whichever key has the little monitor logo on it). Some resolutions cannot display on certain projectors.

You can find this setting in the Control Panel, Display, then Settings tab.

I've tried to connect my laptop to a projector but i just get the information projected but cant be seen on my screen of the laptop


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 ASUS and Dell = Fn + F8

Rebootthe laptop whilst connected to the projector, with the projector power on. This works 99% of the time. You may need to manually enable your external VGA output. Cycle through available options by locating the "Fn" key, in the bottom left of the keyboard and pressing the key in the top row which has a monitor icon (or words such as LCD/crt) in the same colour.

Hold the Fn key down and pressthe top row key. Wait for 5 seconds and see what happens. Then try it again. You should find that the local screen goes blank and the external one is activated. Keep pressing til you get both screens on.

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!

Toshiba LCD projector


always make all connections first !! after that : switch on the laptop, or else no detection of an external monitor/projection device is possible.
Please check also your bios settings, some can be set to force simultaneous display of external screen and lcd of the laptop.
some laptops also require ddc communication between external connected devices.
Try to use a full wired ( except pin 9) VGA cable.

succes

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