Check the specs on projector. The max resolution of it might be 800 x 600.
That's what it is on my HP projector.

Projector starts, goes into search mode with a laptop plugged into it, but does not connect with the laptop.


Try looking at your screen resolution settings on your laptop. For Windows right click on the desktop screen then click screen resolution, or display settings and see if the projector is recognized on your laptop. If yes try changing the resolution as the laptop may be trying to connect at a resolution that isn't supported by the projector.

Cannot get the Projector to see my emachines D620 Laptop screen. Press FN+F^ my computer screen goes dark but nothing shows at the projector tested the projector worked fine with other laptop


To check if the external video port on the laptop by connecting an external monitor to the laptop and see if it works. If it does work then the video port is OK and the only thing I can think of is :-
What is the highest resolution that the projector can display?
Is the video resolution on the laptop set higher than the projector's maximum resolution, if so reduce the screen resolution on the laptop.

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 .

Philips DLP front view projector will not display my presentation


Most modern computers don't care which is plugged in first and/or turned on first... But, it can't hurt to have them both plugged in, then turn on the projector - then the computer. If the computer doesn't send a signal automatically on bootup, then you will need to tell it to...

On the function keys at the top of your laptop keyboard, there are some indications (most computer brands are different from one another so it might be one of several indications). Look for something that either looks like a small monitor or two, or label that says "crt/lcd" - this will be in a highlighted color that matches the color of your Fn key to the left of the spacebar. Fress "Fn" and the corresponding key at the top at the same time and you should get some changes from the computer. Depending on your video card, you might need to press it several times to cycle through the various settings of 1)computer screen, 2)display output only, 3)both computer screen & display output, and in some cases 4)no display sent.

Hope this helps! If not, I would check/try new or different cables from the computer to the projector in case you might just have a bad one.

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!

Device Name


Laptops with a VGA output on the back shouldn?t need any type of ?device? for the projector to work. If its displaying an image with odd colors I would suspect a problem with the projector or the cable that connects them. The easiest way to determine if it?s the projector/cable or the laptop is try connecting it to another PC or laptop.
