Not sure many know what the CRT/LCD button is so I thought I would chime in. The function key located at the bottom left of the keyboard "FN" is used at the same time as an F series key at the top of the keyboard. Usually is F5, F7 or F8 which has an icon on the key that looks like a monitor. Most common promlem with projectors and laptops. Good on ya ridinghood. ;o)

I have an NEC projector and I'm Having difficulties connecting it to laptop. It's not picking any signal up. I have a vga to hdmi cable. Very little knowledge about this so any help would be great.


On the laptop there should be function keys that control the display. Look at those and see if it is F4 or F5 and then use the FN key to change the display mode.

My laptop is used for presentations with a projector. For some reason the last time I used it the projector would not pick up the information from my laptop We tried unplugging starting again, checking all...


Sometimes you have to hold down the function key (usually labeled FN) and then press one of the F keys to get the laptop to send the signal to the projector. On my laptop its FN + F8. The key should have a picture of a monitor or say something like CRT/LCD.

Won't project; can't find signal


Make sure that your computer was turned on first (don't ask me why). Then hold down the Fn key while pressing F8. Hope that helps.

SOURCE PROBLEM


Hi John

Is your Projector's source scan swithed on ?

Does it pick up a signal when you press the source button ?

Trouble with output to the projector


Hi there

Check the following on your laptop.

Right click on your desktop , go to properties and settings - check if your resolution of the PC is the same as that of your Projector. i.e. 800x600 or 1024x768

Also check that your secondary monitor is attached / activated.

If the signal stil won't pick up - hold down the Fn ( function button) left of your spacebar and press in your F-row of buttons the one with 2 screens on it. ( differs from brand and model )

Hope this helps you and good luck with your class tomorrow !
