Hi you must tell the laptop to display out on the projector, how to do that?! you must toggle the display path Generally, there is button ( with Fn keys ) have dusplay screen sample on it, use it with Fn to toggle the display Display have 3 modes:
outside LCD projector or monitor,
or bith 1 + 2
you can press the keys 3 times ( at maximum ) to have the display on both laptop screen and projector
The default to enable the external VGA is Fn+ F8, it toggles between LCD, LCD + External and External only.
You may need to wait up to 15 seconds for the switch to occur.
There also may be issues with the resolution of the projector and or detection if using some type of adapter in the connection.
Resolution of the projector is 800 x 600, so you may need to reduce the system resolution to that too.
If you connect the data projector to your laptop and power it up first then your laptop, the video will switch to the data projector automatically.
If you had powered up the laptop first then you can divert the video information to the external video port/data projector by holding the Fn key and then press F4 key.
You can toggle between the LCD screen, the data projector or both LCD and data project together using the Fn & F4 keys.
Usually you can use a VGA connection cable to connect your computer with a projector. They also have inputs for s-video and RGB but these are much rarer on computers. Once you have connected the projector press the key on your keyboard that looks like a square with two lines on either side (mine is FN+F4) This will shuffle through different setups (mirrored to screen, extended to screen and back to normal) if this doesn't work try plugging in the vga cable and restarting the computer with the projector on.
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.
on your display properties, switch windows to appear on your laptop. and do not connect your LCD when booting your PC. there is an option in display property that says extened your windows to this display... that is your LCD.
You may have to setup the EXTERNAL resoloution for a bigger picture than can generally display on the lappy's screen... there is uaually a setting for the dual display setup... Right Click desktop and click Properties, the video settings can be acessed from there... Also ensure ya have the latest most up-to-date drivers for ya lappy's Video too.
