Dell precision laptop, dell projector m2400 wont detect

Hello...the resolution on the laptop is too least, from your description, that's what the problem sounds like. The projector is capable of 1024x768. Make sure the res on the laptop is set at or below that number. To set the res on the laptop, go into control panel and choose the display option...under settings menu, there will be a slider that you can move--when you move this, the computer will ask you if you want to keep this setting--choose yes. Also, make sure you power up the laptop first, then immediately after, power on the projector--this will help stop any syncing problems that might occur.--Hope I helped you!--Rick

Maybe the cable connected to the projector is bad?

If you shut down the laptop and plug the projector in on 'PC' mode, does the projector recognise the video output?

Remote control

First, make sure your batteries are good.

For moving the slides ahead, there is a button that says next page. When you push that, it will advance.

O, another things is that you must connect your computer to the projector with a USB cable. I assume that you are trying to run it from a computer.

Perhaps you could explain more about what you are using.
