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 ?

I want to watch a sporting event outside on a big screen using a projector. How do I view the live broadcast from my TV through a projector?


the best way
u need to get external video card (it cost's around 15$ or 20euros)
with this u can watch cable tv or satelite tv on ur lap top or pc
the next step is to plug projector to pc, lap top etc.
that's all
If u don't have cable or satelite, there are many sites on web where u can watch tv for free, if u perfer this way u don't need video card, but picture won't be so great also...
i'll writh u down one of the free tv internet sites

The projector probably has a user manual, right? Have you followed the steps in connecting pc with projector? You might have missed a setting or something and need to re-check it.

Hi Gary

Have you resetted the lamp timer ? It must be done when a new lamp is inserted into the unit.

You can reset the lamp timer by holding the up arrow key on the Projector in until a online message appears. Then just follow the on-screen instructions.

If the problem persists , you will have to replace the Ballast wich is the lamp's power supply.
