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 =)

You can choose either.
If you select duplicate, it is useful when you have to give a speech or lecture and you are facing the audience because the projected image is behind you and you can also see the image on the laptop when you face the audience.
The display frequency can be changes in Control Panel - Display

I have dell latitude E6400, I am unable to toggle between external display(projector/monitor) and laptop display. As in laptop manual, i have tried using function keys (fn+f8).


@praskumar79

Things to check:

1. Is your display automatically transfer to the projetor right away when you plug the VGA/HDMI cable to the computer? If not, and Fn+F8 doesn't do anything, try to press the Windows Key+P (the windows key looks like this ray_tosh_1.jpg ). This will allow you to switch between displays. (see image below).

2. If you choose one of the display mode above and it still won't clone/extend the image on your computer to the projector, try to use a different cable. If still no go, try to re-install the display driver and see if that fixes it. If same issue, there might be a problem with your VGA/HDMI/Display port and needs to be serviced.

Good luck

When you partitioned it, did you delete the recovery partition? If so you'll have to acquire 3rd party software to recover the data or do a new install with a disc.

Try holding down the Function key (Fn), then pressing F5. Wait a few seconds. On most laptop, each press of the F5 key will toggle between laptop display only, projector only and Dual (same image on both - my favorite).

You'll probably see a little Monitor-shaped icon on the F5 key. It's possible it's another function key - on Dells it's usually F8.
