Hi jkoceng,

What type of interface cable are you using to connect to the projector? 15-pin VGA? S-video?

Generally on laptops if you look at the keyboard on the function keys (F1, F2, etc.) you'll see little icons such as adjustment of volume, brightness, etc. Look for one that looks like a monitor or screen. Usually this is on the F5 or F6 key. If the icon is blue, look for the corresponding key on the keyboard (Fn key, CTRL, Alt, etc.) and then hold that when connected to the projector while you press the appropriate function key. This should alleviate your problem.

Of course, you'll also want to be certain that you're using the correct input function on the projector.

Your netbook may not have adequate graphics capabilities for the projector and you will need to include the projector's model number for a definitive answer.

take off the electric plug for about couple of minutes and turn it on after. if still persist then it must be the hardware of your tv got a problem. see also the settings of your projector for an adjustments.

How can I get my Gateway desktop to recognize my Projector?


it has to be set up as an additional monitor/display. so, there are settings to set up the displays as either twins, unique seperate or something like that. have not had to do it. but i know that the graphics have to be able to recognize what format the signal is. pc settings change and graphics setttings change. have you done both? the projector should have had instructions? if not look for the manual online.

Can I connect a projector (for presentations powerpoint etc )to my HP Compac desktop? Works with my laptop but need to use the Desktop also.


You should be able to. It will somewhat depend on what video connections your PC has and what the projector will allow. If your desktop does not have the correct connections you can get a video card that should have what you need. Here is a link to video cards from a reputable dealer.

Viewsonic Projector PJ557D "Screen Flip"


Check the power settings o nthe laptop, go to control panel, power options. see if its set to turn off the screen if theres no activity. I doubt this is your problem but worth a try. Going back to the viewsonic picture means its not getting a signal. So either the cable may be faulty which is less likely, or it is a software problem. Does the screen flicker on the laptop when doing the same thing (if the projector is not connected)?

I have a new Macbook Pro and am giving a presentation tomorrow using a Dell 2200mp projector. I cannot get it to sync up and the only cable which works as far as I can see is the USB. HELP!!


Macbooks are equipped with a mini-dvi port this is what you will utilize to send a video signal to your projector first thing you need to figure out is what input is on you projector either it is dvi or vga then go to best buy and get a mini dvi to vga adapter it is only for macs let me know how it comes out

Have you toggled the output display function key on your laptop. Should look like a Square Screen and Laptop symbol. Plug in the projector and keep pressing this button.

Sometimes you have to hold down the function key (usually labeled FN) and then press one of the F keys to get the laptop to send the signal to the projector. On my laptop its FN + F8. The key should have a picture of a monitor or say something like CRT/LCD.
