Question about Computers & Internet
I cannot display the image on my Lenovo G400 laptop using a projector.
I already tried to press Fn+F8 and even tried other function keys. It didn't work. Tried restarting pc and projector, nothing happens. I also configured the mobility settings on my laptop but the only thing it can display is my desktop wallpaper. What else do I need to do?
Please help. Thank you.
Sounds like an extended desktop. have you tried dragging an open window (ie. internet explorer webpage) to the top, right, bottom, AND left? When you get to one of the edges, move it like you are moving it off and it should move to the other screen. You can change your setting to 'duplicate' your desktop in your video settings.

Ok.I got your point.Actually you're in extended mode.
Once you connect you can have 2 types of output to your projector.
1.Clone mode--> make everthing look the same
2.Extended mode--> have another new space for you to use.
** in extended mode you'll have a background of your desktop.you can drag any running program to that space.
How to setup clone and extended mode
1.Click start-->Settings-->Conteol Panel-->Display
2.Under Display Properties window click the last tab name settings
3.Under display select you 2nd monitor
3.Below Screen Resolution you should be able to see a checkbox "extended my windows destop on to this monitor"
please check this box for extended mode or uncheck it incase you won't to use clone mode.
