Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

Dell 6400 when connected to Digital projector forces zoom to unreadable levels

This is a tough issue - so I throwing out the challnge here!
My Dell 6400 only plays up when connected to a digital projector - brand does not matter.
The display adjusts and projects OK,
However, within the application the zoom level adjust AUTOMATICALLY and always adjust itself back- it seem like a "DELL feature".
In Internet Explorer 7 and Mozilla the zoom level is so small that the screen cannot be read. In Office 2007 applications, the zoom level is 400%

This renders the 6400 useless at presentations.

Can anyone help?

This is a common problem with an application called intellitype or Intellitype Pro.

You can turn off zoom in the intelliType application. This will fix it.

Projector lens in focus yet the image isn't sharp and the fine lines have Halation around the edges


How long is the cable run? If it's too far away then that's what's causing the "ghosting" effect. You'll need some sort of transmitter/receiver. To quick troubleshoot, bypass the long cable run, and use a shorter cable to connect to the projector and see if the issue still shows.

Vt37 will not focus


if the focus ring and zoom does not work, make sure you are within the designed throw distance (2-24 feet). if you are, you have a lens issue and will need to send it in for repair.

Need to change the "Throw"


the throw is adjusted by the zoom on the lens, getting a different lens (or projector suited for this situation), or moving the projector.

Missing VGA out port signal


According to the specs for this laptop it comes with Vista. Because of that I am assuming you have put XP on it in place of Vista and I am also assuming that you just need to install some additional drivers from Dell. Click Here to go to Dell's driver listing for the Inspiron 6400 and make sure Win XP is selected as the OS and download the correct Video driver.

I have a Dell 3400MP Projector. When I plug it into my Dell Latitude D810, the screen size expands from 100% to 6400%. Not sure what is this causing this?


Hi
This is because the screen resolution on the laptop is much higher than the maximum supported by the projector. Try dropping your screen resolution on the laptop to 800 x 600 before plugging in the projector
Cheers
