Cannot display image on a proector using Lenovo laptop

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.

    Thanks for the suggestions. It seems that it's not working on the extended mode. Even if I drag windows, nothing is displayed on it. I even tried to choose clone(duplicate) mode, it didn't display anything at all. By the way, I'm using Vista Home Premium.
    I appreciate your help. Thanks. :)

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.

takecare.

Tried projector no work


Connect your projector to your laptop using a VGA cable. Now turn ON your projector and your laptop.

To make your screen projected, look at your function keys (F1 to F12). Look for the icon which looks like a laptop LCD and a TV. It should appear like LCD icon/TV icon. In some model it is in F4 while F3 in Lenovo. Example, you found the icon in F4, just press and hold down the FN key and press F4 to send your desktop image to the projector. This combination is called the "dual monitor" setup which in your case, the second monitor is a digital projector.

Laptop computer connected to projector.


When the projector displays the background image and the lcd displays the desktop as normal you can drag the open windows to the left or right and display them on the projector. it sounds like this laptop has an internal video card. If you right click on the desktop it might give you options to configure the display settings for the video card. Not sure how you will get to it if it does not show up on the right click menu. Probably through the start menu or in the control panel there should be somewhere to change the settings for the video card. This will no be under the display settings though.

But once you find your dual display options you will be able to change it to make both displays the same
