Problem with truncated image from data projector

I am trying to choose a data projector to go with my newly acquired DELL Vospro 1700 laptop. I had the opportunity to try out an old Mitsubishi model SD 205 borrowed from a friend. One of the things I found was that I couldn't make the image from the projector match the image on the laptop's monitor. Both left and right hand side were cut off. None of the settings on the projector seemed to make any difference.

You will need to setup the displays from the computer running the projector.

Setup the projector as being a second monitor pretty much and make the adjustments from that in display properties on your computer, or your video card may have it's own control panel for this as well.

Hope it helps =)

How do I get rid of the shadow that appears to the left of the projected image ?

The shadow is caused by projected light from the unit outside the image field. I have the same problem, and I just tend to ignore it. I have tried various settings and sizes to minimize the effect, but some shadow always remains. This is true with any projector.

Dell e1909wf monitor need driver

Go to the Dell website appropriate to your location and select 'support' > monitors & projectors > monitors.
On the us website Product Support Dell US (the link is to different monitor, just select 'choose a different monitor'), and choose monitor E1909Wb ( Product Support Dell US ) and from the menu at the left select Downloads and drivers Download and install the driver; there is only one. This driver should work with your monitor, but it might not. You might try contacting Dell Support directly before you do this, explaining that your model is not listed, and see what they say. Have your monitor's product number and s/n to hand. You also have the option of finding on line support by auto-detecting your stuff (you must have the monitor connected and working !!) or searching by 'Enter a Service Tag or Express Service Code' - this should be on your monitor. Read also the set-up instructions for monitors.

Our Optoma TL50W has too much range and interferes with other similar projectors. We need to run 6-7 data projectors with laptops within 20 to 40 feet from one another in a conference center.

Wireless has CSMA/CD to detect and avoid transmission when you have multiple devices, so having more than one shouldn't be a problem. You can't however give them the same IP. That's just not allowed on a network. There should be away to give them different IP's or just configure them for DHCP so your network will configure them for you.

Vertical lines accross the screen

Vertical lines running down the screen is indicative of a data failure to the screen itself, which means either the screen is starting to fail or the data being transmitted through the data cable is being interferred with. Put a hand on either side of the monitor and give the monitor a light twist....does the line disappear? or do more lines either case, there is a problem where the data cable attaches to the lcd panel itself. You can try to change out cables, if that doesn't correct it, then the panel may have to be replaced. If you have the option of trying the computer on another monitor that would be the first step in seeing where the problem lies.

Is this connected to a laptop?

If so, you need to be sure that you have the monitor output set for an external monitor.

Do a right clock on the desktop, select the bottom item to personalize your display. Select Display Settings and choose to display on both monitors. I usually use the extended display so that I get two screens. If you just want one screen, you select the external monitor as the primary monitor.

May lcd monitor dell not power


If there is no power or "Led" indicator on the power button, try plugging the power cable to a different power point. If still won't turn-on, try changing the power cable. If still no power. It only means the LCD is already deffective.

Hope this helps.

Need to connect my dell laptop to a large screen projector using a computer video interface for vga and compatible computers I have a delllatitude d610 the interface is an inline2080

I assume you know how to connect the VGA cable and which function key is used to activate the second display. You will have problems if the laptop display size is not supported by the projector. Many older projectors will not work with wide screen laptops.
when you connect the projector, Just press the presentation mode on your keyboard, Fn + (Presentation Key), Sometimes F5 or F8!

Then you will see your desktop on the projector screen.hope this helps

Connecting a Dell Latitude D630 Laptop with an HP LP2465 monitor

The Dell Latitude D630 has a 15 pin VGA port that can connect to an external monitor or projector. For detailed information go to and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag"(serial number) of the laptop. Confirm this is the model you have and select “manuals” on the left side column. Select “Get manual” and select the language option. You can view or download the “User’s Guide” in different formats. After you choose the format you want, select “Using the Display” for info.
