What kind of projector are you using? what color are the ends of the cable you are connecting your projector to the laptop with? if your using the Blue ends, be sure your projector is on, and is running on the VGA input. Most projectors do not auto detect input and must be set manually prior to the FN + F5 key combination. White connector ends are called DVI or Digital input on the projector.

Dell latitude D630 wont recognize projector


Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

I cannot get my lap top to show on the all with my projector


Laptop will often have a function key (usually F5) for cycling between built-in display, external monitor, and both. Try pressing F5. If that doesn't work and you have a "Fn" key (usually near the left Shift key) hold down Fn and press F5.

Can't get my notebook screan to show


hello,
Indentify the video output options of the computer and the input options of the projector. Most common are VGA and S-Video. use the appropriate cable to connect the two. Your projector may be able to probe its ports to see what signal it is getting.
On your computer. After you make the hardware connection and your projector is set to receive on the correct port, extend your desktop to show on a TV if S-Video, or on a monitor if VGA. To have the screen of your computer to appear on the external screen, use the FN-Fx key combinations. Examine the laptop`s function keys and look for some icon that shows a computer and a screen. Most probably it is the F5 key.
Assuming F5 to be the right key, you press Fn-F5 and an OSD will appear on your computer. You scroll from an icon to the other by pressing F5 while still pressing down the Fn key.

If that does not work, I suggest you check your computer s manual for the right key combinations.
Hope it helps.

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 .
