I think the problem is that you have set the projector as an extension of your desktop.
you need to use it as a copy.
You might need to go to desktop properties->settings and uncheck the box which tells about extending desktop to monitor.
Connect the projector to the laptop, and press <Fn> in combination with one of your Function Keys (F1-F12). Probably the correct combination is <Fn>+F8, if not, just try the other keys. There should be one or another image/text on the key of which action is assigned to the key.

Please post some feedback

I have a new mac pro and I am trying to use it with a Dell LCD projector. It shows the homepage without any text and won't show anything else.


What do you mean by "shows the home page"? What home page?
Normally you will see your mac's desktop (or, on some models) you will see your desktop background without any icons. If that happens the projector is acting as an extended screen.
If you want to project exactly what you see on the laptop's make sure that mirroring is switched on in the monitors panel of system preferences.

No live picture on Benq digital projector


seems to me like your acer laptop's display is configured " extend my desktop to this monitor", that's why you can only see the desktop background. Go to your display properties and change it to clone display or uncheck the extend display option.
