Look for the F-key with a square/icon of a laptop. Press FN+This button until you see your screen display show that it will be using your LCD + the output on your computer. Remember you need to hook both the VGA or HDMI out to the projecter as well as the USB cable.

Hello, i can't connect my projector to dell n5010 laptop. no device find when connect projector to laptop. please help me.


The following is from page 69 of the 354-page Dell Technology Guide for the N5010

General Keyboard Shortcuts

<Fn><F8>
Displays icons representing all currently available display options (display only, external monitor or projector only, both display and projector, and so on). Highlight the desired icon to switch the display to that option


So the solution is just plug the VGA cable from the projector into the N5010 laptop's VGA port and then press <Fn><F8> (Function and F8 keys together).

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

* Refer to "second monitor" as being the projection screen..

When you set up your dual screen, you have three possible configurations:

1. You can have the desktop with all icons, toolbars, etc. on one monitor and the other screen merely is a companion to the main monitor. This means you would have to click and drag the programs you open to the other side of the monitor.

In your case, this is how it is configured and is generally called an "extended desktop.

2. Another configuration is to disable the main monitor and just view the projector as your main monitor. Most likely, we will want to avoid this one (but if this happens you will understand what happened and why the screen is blacked out on main monitor.)

3. This would be the ideal configuration for dual screens as both the projector and the monitor have the exact same thing showing on them. To set your dual monitors up this ay, follow these instructions.

Open the display (by following pictures previously or from control panel) and uncheck mark the box that says "extend my windows desktop into this monitor." Hit apply and okay. This will set the montitor and projector to be exactly the same.

Laptop computer connected to projector.


When the projector displays the background image and the lcd displays the desktop as normal you can drag the open windows to the left or right and display them on the projector. it sounds like this laptop has an internal video card. If you right click on the desktop it might give you options to configure the display settings for the video card. Not sure how you will get to it if it does not show up on the right click menu. Probably through the start menu or in the control panel there should be somewhere to change the settings for the video card. This will no be under the display settings though.

But once you find your dual display options you will be able to change it to make both displays the same

Infocus projector 4805 connected to Toshiba laptop


1.
Connect the external display port on your laptop computer to the projection system, and then turn on the projector. For information about connecting external devices to your laptop, see the documentation for your laptop computer.
2.
Set the display resolution of your laptop computer to match the resolution of the projector system. First, on your laptop, open the Display Properties dialog box by using the Display icon in Control Panel, and click the Settings tab. Then, in Screen resolution area, move the slider to adjust the display resolution of your laptop. If you don't know which setting to choose, try 800 x 600 pixels; this is a common setting for many projector systems.

Probem with connecting projector with laptop in vista OS


Hi,

You need to change your graphics card settings from extended desktop to cloned desktop.
You will find that if you use your mouse currently to drag a window or icon across to the projected screen, it will move the window there. This is the extended desktop.
I assume that what you want is to have the exact same screen on your laptop and your projector - this is called the clone screen.
These setting can be by right clicking your desktop, select properties. Click on the display settings tab. click on the advanced settings button, and the the graphics card tab. There should be another button to launch the graphics card settings there.

Hope this helps.

Connecting cinego projector to hp laptop


don't know much about the cinego ( resolution ect)

but on most laptops you will have a "F" button or function key near the top row.. mine is F5 that has 2 square icons to show 2 monitors, 1 black, 1 white, when your projector is hooked to your laptop, hold down the FN key probably lower left or right, and tap the F5 or f7 which ever has the 2 montiors on it, it should be a 3 position switch, 1..laptop only, 2 laptop and projector, 3rd position projector only.

that cingo is pretty low-end so you may have to goto display properties on your laptop and reduce the resolution to 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768.

if you can't get a setting that works, try the 3rd position with just the projector display on, and laptop display off, since your laptop screen is higher resolution it corrects a lot of issues.
