Hi raejeshq

CONNECTING LAPTOP TO INCOMPATIBLE PROJECTOR

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System, consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question, including information about your Operating System.

The graphics chip in your laptop can operate within a defined range of resolutions and refresh rates. As long as the resolutions and refresh rates required by this projector lie within the range your graphics chip is capable of achieving, you should be able to adjust the settings so that this projector will function with your laptop.

With the cable connected to the notebook and the projector:

Right click on open space on your desktop > Properties (Personalize) > (Display) Settings > Advanced Settings > Monitor > untick "Hide Modes that Monitor cannot display" > select 50Hz > Apply > OK > right click on desktop > Properties (Personalize) > (Display) Settings > click and hold on the slide controller and test various resolutions until you find a satisfactory resolution for the projector > Apply > Yes > OK

I hope this helps.

I have dell latitude E6400, I am unable to toggle between external display(projector/monitor) and laptop display. As in laptop manual, i have tried using function keys (fn+f8).


@praskumar79

Things to check:

1. Is your display automatically transfer to the projetor right away when you plug the VGA/HDMI cable to the computer? If not, and Fn+F8 doesn't do anything, try to press the Windows Key+P (the windows key looks like this ray_tosh_1.jpg ). This will allow you to switch between displays. (see image below).

2. If you choose one of the display mode above and it still won't clone/extend the image on your computer to the projector, try to use a different cable. If still no go, try to re-install the display driver and see if that fixes it. If same issue, there might be a problem with your VGA/HDMI/Display port and needs to be serviced.

Good luck

Connecting to projector


The function keys are most commonly F8 and F4, but you can look for the dual monitor icon in other Function Keys. If you are using Vista, you are offered a software switch when you connect an external monitor/projector. It is a matter of clicking on icons on your desktop.

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!

Laptop screen does not work when plugged into projector


If you connect a laptop projector or external monitor before you boot up your laptop, the video most likely will go directly to that external device. To have both the laptop LCD and projector you will need to press the Function key that has the monitor/laptop symbole (this key will be a dual function key and you will need to press the Fn key first and then the Function key with the monitor/laptop symbole. This Function can be any key between F3 and F12, it depends on the brand of the laptop.
When you press this key it will toggle between
LCD only
External monitor/projector only
or both LCD and external monitor/projector
