Question about Eiki LC-SM4 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Can't hook up my laptop to play DVD's through my Eiki LC-XNB4M

I have a Dell Inspiron 1000 that plays DVD movies fine. It has Windows XP Home Edition with SP3 and 53+ GB of free disk space. It has 3 USB ports, 1 terminal that looks like the projector's "computer in 2/component in", and an earphone out jack that works fine.
I have a USB cable - one end is flat for connecting to the laptop and the other end fits into the projector's USB (series B) port. I have 3 other cables: an S-Video, a "Computer in 1/DVI-1" terminal cable, and a heavy duty cable with Red, White, and Yellow RCA plugs on both ends.
Everything on the projector works fine, except I can't find the right combination of cables from laptop to projector, or the right settings in the projector menu. All I can get the projector to do is display a pretty blue screen. Please help! Thanks!

Computer should always be connected with 15 pin VGA to DVI-I cable.
Select in menu input 1 analog RGB and adjust output resolution of Dell to 1024 x 768. this should work !
USB is only for mouse control with pj remote

I got a lap dell that dont play should how can i get that installed for free striaght to my laptop


Don't play what? Games? Movies? If you mean movies, you can try Artisan DVD player. This will only play DVD movies if your laptop has a DVD-rom. If you only have a cd-rom, no software will help you play a DVD movie. You can get the software free here:

Dvd DOES NOT PLAY MOVIES AND UNABLE TO LOAD GAME SOFTWARE


The standard version has Windows Vista® Home Basic Edition SP1. This version do not have native support for decoder to watch DVD movies. Install a good DVD player like WinDVD or any other DVD player software. This will install the necessary decoder. Once this is done even if the installed trial version expire, your windows media player will still play the movies. However, if you like the software, make it fully licensed version on-line. Hope this helps.

Installed a rangeplus adapter on dell 1000 inspiron xp sp3 home


See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.

Cd drive skipping


hey,
i have inspiron 6400 myself, with vista home edition installed.

your e1505 is the new version of my dell

spec and review here on e1505 http://blog.miguelovitch.dk/2007/12/18/dell-inspiron-e1505-replace-6400/

I can watch movies both online and 'offline'. DVDs, mpeg, avi, and wmv format and more.

I think you have some problems with your media player or codec.

Are you using xp or vista?

/michael

why pay for software?
