How do I project my computer screen onto the screen


Every laptop has a facility to toggle the display from the screen to an external display. The exact method varies from brand to brand. But they're all a variation on the same theme. It's the Function button (Fn) and one of the F keys. On my HP its Fn + F4. I've had laptops in the past where it has been F5 and others that were F8. All of them though had a little symbol representing a screen on the correct key.

The way it works is that the laptop screen is on. The first press of the two buttons will put both screens on. The next press is just the output to the projector. The final press brings it round to the laptop only again.

Once you have just the projector running, then you should change the display resolution to suit the projector if the laptop hasn't already done it for you. You can tell when it's wrong because the text won't be crisp. The Powewrlite S1+ has a resolution of 800x600. Right click on the PC desktop and then select "graphics properties" or similar from the menu. Change the resolution from the drop down box. Click OK to confirm.

How do I use the split screen on my Dell computer?


The universal way to display a split screen (on laptop screen, and on monitor/projector at the same time) is to hold down the function key (Fn) and press F5. You may have to press F5 a couple times.. by pressing F5 is cycles through a couple different modes (external video only, laptop/external video, and then back to only laptop screen).

I have hooked up my computer to the projector. I get the blue screen and nothing else. How can I get the image to project? Thank You!


make sure you're on the correct source on the projector. now i'm not sure if you're using a laptop, if you are, then you're gonna have to press FN and F5 (depending what type of laptop you have, sometimes it's F8) buttons on your laptop. this activates the computer port of your laptop.

My Canon LV-5210 displays no image for my computer. It has worked fine in the past. And it did not work a couple days ago and then it worked OK yesterday when we accidentently pushed the Input buttom. But...


If your projector displays no image, this could be a variety of problems. First, check that the projector has power. On the top of the LCD or DLP projector should be some lights. With power, those lights will be on. If it has power, check to make sure that the projector lamp is firing. If so, go to the source. Make sure that it is connected with a VGA cable or USB cable to your computer, or with an RGB cable, S-Video cable or DVI connection to your VCR/DVD Player. From a laptop computer, the VGA cable should be connected to the VGA out connection, and into the VGA in connection on the projector. Are both ends tight?
If everything has checked out so far, the solution probably lies with the external monitor port. Check this by holding the Fn key on the keyboard, then press the F7 key. (On some computers, the key might be F5 or F3. Try these if F7 doesn't work) Each time you press the Fn / F7 combination, you will cycle your display through the following settings:
* Press Fn / F2 or F2 once: The laptop screen only
* Press Fn / F2 or F2 twice: The projector port only
* Press Fn / F7 or F2 three times: Both the laptop and projector port
* Wait a few seconds after each time you press the key combination to let the LCD or DLP projector refresh. Nine times out of ten this will result in seeing your projected image.
this should help you :)

Getting the lenovo m500 dlp projector to work


Solved ....when it projects it says to push Fn and F7 simultaneously for Lenovo laptops. The symbol for the F7 on Lenovo is the computer screen and keyboard plus a screen with a line attaching. On the Toshiba it is the F5 key. Pressing the Fn and F5 keys on the Toshiba simultaneously gives 5 box choices, the middle is CRT and the correct one to transfer from computer screen to projector.

Need to see display on both laptop and projector


On most laptops pressing the Fn key plus the F5 key (in your model laptop) several times will cause the video to switch to different options
In the various laptops I've used with data projectors it is the same.
If you plug in the data projector and power it up then the laptop then the Windows image will be on the data projector (provided the laptop's screen resolution matches the data projector).
To toggle between the data projector only, the LCD screen, then LCD screen plus data projector, and or back through this sequence, just press the Fn key and the F5 key to get the displays you want .

if you don't have the 2nd screen option. Then hold down the blue FN button and then tap F5 see if the picture comes, the FN + F5 will swap around with the outputs.

Computer used to work with projector, and now doesn't?


Have you tried pressing Fn F5? On my system (HP), by computer monitor goes dark when I connect the projector. Pressing (Function) FN F5 toggles the video between Computer Monitor, Projector, or Both.
Check the function settings for your computer. On my Compaq laptop at home, the video function is F4, so there may be different settings for your computer.
Good luck!

Won't project; can't find signal


Make sure that your computer was turned on first (don't ask me why). Then hold down the Fn key while pressing F8. Hope that helps.
