There are a bunch of steps I could walk you through to detect the projector and then set the correct resolution and color depth. But it will be easier to have you just attach the projector and then restart the laptop so that the system will attempt to re-detect the second display automatically.

Then just right click the desktop and select properties. Go under display properties, settings, and enable the second screen (2) as either a cloned or extended display.

Differing size display when using Dell 3200mp LCD projector


Once your display of the projector is set( all connection to computers via cables is done), then all the display settings remain with the source i.e. the laptop.

You will need to set all your laptops to the correct display properties. This you can do by either going to presentation mode or on Window XP you can simply go on to your desktop and right click > go to properties>go to setting> press display 2 and set the screen resolution as per your projectors resolution and enjoy. ( for information: display1 is the resolution meant for your laptop)

Please do rate this solution and Thanks for usinf FixYa!

Cannot display picture on the screen and laptop


Hold down the Fn button and press F8. Try this pushing F8 once. then try it again pushing F8 twice. And so on. The F8 button switches the display between the lcd monitor on the laptop and the external display. There should be an option in there to display on both at once.

Sanyo Projector==No signal


Hi, Perhaps you can try lowering the screen resolution first of the laptop before plugging in the projector and then the Fn + F8. Thereafter, gradually increase the screen resolution until projector stops displaying. The idea is that your current screen resolution maybe too much for the projector to handle. This of course is assuming that there is no hardware problem with the projector. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
