Having problems getting my powerpoint slide to show from the laptop onto the screen. Not sure what the function key is?


try Fn key with F5 or F8. depends on your model of laptop.
Look for the screen symbol on one of the function keys and try pressing that once and wait several seconds to see the screen changing video. Then press again if not correct.

If nothing is appearing on the projector, then connect a lcd monitor on the laptop and try the function keys intil it works thyen swap the monitor for the projector, and start the input scan for the active video input.

Try holding down the Function key (Fn), then pressing F5. Wait a few seconds. On most laptop, each press of the F5 key will toggle between laptop display only, projector only and Dual (same image on both - my favorite).

You'll probably see a little Monitor-shaped icon on the F5 key. It's possible it's another function key - on Dells it's usually F8.

Image appears on laptop screen but wont project onto external screen from projector. The model is:Optoma DS 306 DLP


Most laptops have the ability to send the image to the screen, the projector or both. Switching is often a combination of the Function key and one of the functions (eg F5) The particular key may have CRT/LCD on it. Pressing this combination of keys once, twice or three times cycles between the three options mentioned above.

Need to see display on both laptop and projector


On most laptops pressing the Fn key plus the F5 key (in your model laptop) several times will cause the video to switch to different options
In the various laptops I've used with data projectors it is the same.
If you plug in the data projector and power it up then the laptop then the Windows image will be on the data projector (provided the laptop's screen resolution matches the data projector).
To toggle between the data projector only, the LCD screen, then LCD screen plus data projector, and or back through this sequence, just press the Fn key and the F5 key to get the displays you want .

Computer used to work with projector, and now doesn't?


Have you tried pressing Fn F5? On my system (HP), by computer monitor goes dark when I connect the projector. Pressing (Function) FN F5 toggles the video between Computer Monitor, Projector, or Both.
Check the function settings for your computer. On my Compaq laptop at home, the video function is F4, so there may be different settings for your computer.
Good luck!
