First thing you want to do is update the video driver. I use a D630 myself and had the same issue. I updated the driver and it worked fine. Here is a link to download the driver - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=2684&l=en&s=pub&os=LHS64&osl=en&SystemID=LATITUDE%20D630&catid=-1&impid=-1

If you scroll down to Video you can then slect the correct driver. If you are not using Windows XP then change it at the top with the drop down menus.

The most common video driver is the intel one.

I have an HP DV9000 laptop and did a presentation yesterday. When I arrived at the site I had to attach the display to an LCD projector. I connected the project via a porft connector, I believe that...


I think it's probably FN+F8 that may do this on the HP laptops. The key should have a little icon on it in the same color as the function key (typically blue) that will toggle the screen from the laptop screen to the external. There are usually 3 modes to this toggle
1. Laptop screen only
2. External screen only
3. Mirrored on laptop screen and external screen

So try toggling with the FN+F8 key combination.

Also you can probably start up in safe mode to disable the external VGA toggle.

When you see the HP Splash screen, start tapping the F8 Key to bring up the boot menu. From there choose safe mode and see if you get the video back in safe mode....After that reboot and see if it will bring up the video in normal viewing mode.

Good Luck

Look for the F-key with a square/icon of a laptop. Press FN+This button until you see your screen display show that it will be using your LCD + the output on your computer. Remember you need to hook both the VGA or HDMI out to the projecter as well as the USB cable.

Dell E5400 connecting to projector, "presentation


Check your keyboard for a "Fn" button and a picture of a screen or similar on another key, usually in the same colour as the "Fn" is written in which will also be a different colour to whatever the normal keys are in.
If you find them, hold Fn down and then tap the key that looks like a screen (might be F8)
If that doesnt do it, look in your system tray (icons by the clock bottom right) for a display menu, right click on it and go through looking for dual display options, play around there - I cant give you steps because I dont know what you will have there but it should be apparent what to do when you see it.

Unable to play live tv from lap top to projector


Is it just the live tv or the laptop in general you are not getting a signal from? Using 15 pin VGA cable correct from laptop to projector?
When booted to projector, on laptop, select "FN" key and either F5, F7 or F8 depending on your laptop. Look for the monitor logo on the F keys. This is telling the computer that you have hooked up an additional external monitor (the projector). Once will send image to projector, twice will display on both, a third time will return to just image on laptop.

Wen i conented the projector it not porject to my gateway lap top


Connect the projector and hit your function (FN) key and tap the F8 key. This should toggle the display to the projector.

If that doesn't work, look at your FN keys (top row) and look for a blue label for CRT/LCD and use FN+ that key.

Power Point Presentation Using Sanyo Pro Xtra X Multiverse Projector


Don't forget to select the Fn key and F4 on HP laptops. It could also be the Fn key and F8 depending on the laptop brand. It is the apple key and the F7 key on a Mac notebook. On Laptops this will toggle the video to the aux port where the monitor cable connects to the projector. There are 3 modes. video on the laptop screen, video on the laptop and projector, or video to the projector only.

My acer lap top will not recanize the projector when i press the fn plus thef8 keys


Hi, Try lowering your laptop's resolution (Display Properties) to 1024x768 (or even lower like 800x600), before fn + F8. You can also try lowering the Monitor's screen refresh rate (60Hx). Another setting you can check is Advanced Settings tab or button and check settings for projector (instead of TV). If it works in the lower settings, you can try moving the settings higher until it quits again. If the above does not fix your problem, you may need to re-install your graphics/video driver. Hope this gives you an idea. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
