I have a NEC LT380 Projector and the Logo Password is locked and I've forgotten the password. How can I reset the password?

This is a theft prevention measure. I quote here from the NEC write up of the projector - "By using passwords, the projector cannot be used by unauthorized persons. Once the security function is in effect, a message requesting the password is displayed when the power of the main unit is turned on. It is impossible to project an image unless the proper password is entered."

As long as you are the legit owner NEC or the dealer you bought it from can give you a release key.
You will need to contact them and provide this proof of purchase. You can reach their support page here:

How do I reset the lamp on my XL5U Projector?

Hi, on the control panel you will see buttons that look like tape forward or rewind. Press both buttons and the power button all at the same time for about three seconds. This will reset your lamp or start up the mitsubishi XL5U projector after lamp change. I hope you find this helpful.

Do i need to do something special to hook my laptop up to a mitsubishi projector using a VGA cable other than fn and f8 on the Dell laptop?

this should be enough to ensure signal is going out of your monitor port on the back of your Dell.

the projectory also supports montor to montor cable rather than vga

suspected for VGA the projector needs to be set to video input
and for monitor to monitor cable to computer input setting.
if picture is not seen straight away cycle FN combination until picuture is seen.

I found that the locking code is memorized by components on the dvi-circuit board. Alas, I can't tell you how to reset the code.
