Question about Dell Latitude D620 Notebook
He is trying to play movies to a projector using a powerpoint presentation he has. His computer shows fine on the projector, but when he tries to play the video, it shows on his computer but not the projector. As soon as the movie is stopped, the projector will show his computer again. This used to work a couple of days ago, but system restore did not help. He tried using a different projector of his, but the same thing happened. We now think it is something wrong with the computer. We tried using different fn - f8 combinations, but to no avail. What is wrong?Dell model number: Latitude d620Toshiba projector model number: TDP-T45He is not using usb, but is using the cable with lots of pins (I don't remember the name).He is also using Office 2007 professional.
I have encountered this same problem once in the office when i was trying to do the same thing.
*Assuming you have windows xp*
1) make sure the projector and the laptop are connected (FN+F8), do a right click anywhere in your desktop then go to settings by default Monitor 1 would be your Lattitude D620 and Monitor 2 should be your projector, to make sure of that click on the 'identify' it should show a 1 in your laptop and a 2 on the projector
2) now select monitor 2 and select 'use this device as my primary monitor' check mark, by doing this your videos should play in your monitor but they will be a blank/black screen on the laptop (basically we are reverting the order).

Try changing the display resolution , best resoultion is to try it at 800 x 600 or 1024 x768.
Let me know if that works

Change the codec of the movie or "avi" file. It seems that some projectors don't like specific codecs.
To change codec you need to use some type of conversion software. I use Bink and Smacker. Pretty good one!
