Sm bus controllers are requred for my laptop to connect to a projector are or not i have video controlers installed

SMBus Controller stands for System Bus Controller, which is a part of chipset. Most commonly it is found in computer motherboards for communication with the power source for ON/OFF instructions. Hence, it is clear that it has nothing to do with graphics or connecting the projector with the PC. It can be installed by installing chipset drivers for the motherboard you have.
To connect project with the laptop, all you have to do is connect the projector (secondary display) with the laptop and after restart it should give display on the projector. You may have to adjust BIOS settings or use FN Key to get the secondary display. Please refer to the following video for details.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I have a toshiba tdp-t45 and a Dell D600 how do I get the image from the computer to display from the projector?

Connect the toshiba tdp-t45 to the back of the D600 and then hold down FN and tap F8. This will transfer the video to the tdp-t45. If this does not work for the first time try the Fn and F8 keys 2 - 3 times.
