Projector problems with my lap top

I have vista on my lap top. Everytime i plug in the projector to it, the screen flashes on and off and so does the image on the wall from the projector. It will sort it self out and then within a minute or so ir starts again. I have changed down the resolution on the lap top and it still happens.
I am unable to use the projector with it. It works fine with my mates laptop.
Mine is a compaq presario F500.

Any ideas please ?

How do I get all my old info, pics, documents and all stuff saved from my old desk top computer compaq presario 5700n windows 98 second edition so i can put it on my lap top, my flash drive won't work on...


Take the hard drive out and get someone knowledgeable to put it in their system as a slave drive. Then plug your flash drive into their system and copy all the files to it. I'd say this is the fastest and easiest solution to the problem. You could always network it to another computer and transfer the files also.

I disconnected my son's lap top and we can not connect to the internet on his lap top It's saying on the lap top can not display this page Laura


Try connecting to http://209.235.250.53/

If it works, the laptop is using a bad DNS address. How you fix that depends on the operating system - XP or Vista.

My hard drive got damged and has bean replaced with a new one, I cant get operating system to work more than 30 days. I have installed vista using a reboot disk that came with lap top. The lap top worked...


I AM CURENTLY AWITING ANOTHER REBOOT DISK AS THE MANUFACTUERS OF THE LAP TOP SAID IT MIGHT NEAD THE FULL INSTAL OF VISTA HOME BASIC AND NOT JUST THE REBBOT PROGRAM VERSION I GOT WITH THE PC. AS THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE THE START UP SETINGS THAT CONFIGS THE BIOS TO USE VISTA. ( I DIDNT UNDERSTAND THIS TILL I ACTURLY GOT INTO THE BIOS) THE NEW DISK WILL ASLO INCLUDE A NEW PRODUCT KEY THAT DOES NOT NEAD TO BE CONFIRMD VIA INTERNET TO USE AS IT IS JUST THE BASIC VISTA PROGRAM THAT SHOLD ALOW ME TO INSTAL MY UTILITIS AND DRIVERS TO INSTAL THE MODEMS AND OTHER SYSTEM FILES. WHEN I ORIGANLY GOT THE LAP TOP IN 2007 THE REBOOT &RECOVERY DISKS ONLY HAD THE SET UP PROGRAMS THIS ALOWS YOU TO INSTAL VISTA OPERATING SYSTEM BUT NOT ALL THE PROGRAMS WILL WORK AS YOU NEAD TO DOWNLOAD THE FULL SYSTEM SETINGS. SO JUST TO LET OTHERS KNOW IF YOU GOT A LAP TOP OR PC THAT ONLY HAD A REBOOT DISK TO CHEK THAT IT IS THE FULL VERSION ( NEW VISTA RECOVERY 2008 ) AND NOT THE 2007 ONE

I WIL LET YOU KNOW HOW I DID IT IF THIS WORKS

THANKS FOR THE OFFER

Hi i have an hp pavilion dv2000 lap top, i am trying to record my acoustic guitar into the comp. This lap has conexant high definition audio sound card inbuilt. However when i try and plug a microphone...


The mic may be muted on the computer. In XP, double click the volume control icon in the bottom right of the screen to get the mixer. If you don't see the microphone input, go to 'options' then 'properties' and place a check in the box to show it. Then make sure it is unmuted and the volume is up.
In Vista, right-click the volume icon and choose recording devices and make sure it is on and volume up.

Usually Vista does not need driver to install an USB Mouse.
Try this:
Turn off the laptop, then put the mouse connection. Turn on again. See if now it is working. The mouse should be connected in "off"
If still does not work, try put in other USB port of the laptop. Usually a laptop has at least 2 USB port. Remember to connect it always in "off".

If you really want to format it and wipe everything then you will need a copy of Windows Vista to boot up from, but if I were you I would give Vista the elbow and buy XP instead.
