    Am having the very same problem without any success.

  • Anonymous Mar 17, 2008

    Hey Guys, I have an Acer Travelmate C300, yes, not the latest gear.

    Problem is that I visit different clients, who each have their own different projectors!

    I sometimes can't get their projectors to recognise my laptop.

    Can you please give me step by step instructions to achieve success?

    My original user manuals give no guidance on this matter.

    Desparate,

    Bruce

    I'm connected to an optoma projector. My wallpaper shows up on the projector screen. When I select "identify" from the Display settings, a "1" shows up on the laptop screen and a "2" on the Projector screen, but I can't get the video to show on the projector screen unless I manually drag it to the screen. Can't seem to make any difference with various settings. Any ideas.

You could try using the S-video connection.

Below your screen, there is an icon on graphic display, click on it and select which mode of output you wish, i.e., monitor and display out, or display only, etc.

Hello i have a problem i have a epson ex30 projector and i cant make it work with mt toshiba labtop


Hello:
When connecting a projector or second display to your laptop, you may need to tell the laptop to "clone" or "duplicate" your display onto the second device. This can be done one of two ways:
  1. A key combination on your keyboard.

    A. While holding the Function or Fn button on your keyboard, press the
    Function key that shows a picture of a monitor or a computer and a
    monitor. On my Toshiba laptop, this is F5.

    B. You may have to press the Function key multiple times. If this doesn't
    work, proceed to option 2.

  2. The video card driver's settings.

    A. Navigate to Start>Control Panel>Display

    B. In Windows 7: On the left-hand side of the window, choose "Connect to a
    projector". A dialog box will popup. Choose "Duplicate".

Picture Projection


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.

I can't get the display from my laptop to project to a screen.


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.

Unable to transmit image to projector


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.

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.
