Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
When using my projector with my laptop (Vista) I experience error in synchronisation which results in the projector cycling through the interface input options searching for the computer. I have tried replacing the VGA cords always with the same result. I have also tried connection with another laptop (XP pro) and my desk top. I don't experience this problem from the desktop. I have connected an external monitor to my laptop and experience no dropout of signal. When connecting to the projector with a laptop there is a very lengthy period before synchronisation.
Please make sure you are using a resolution and refresh rate compatible with the projector as the sync circuitry in projectors can sometimes be a bit touchy. Also make sure the signal you are providing does not consist of a totally black on the edges as this can confuse the image processor in the projector. I would suggest looking up precisely what is the native resolution of the projector and what refresh rate it likes, if in doubt use 60Hz. The refresh rate can be set in windows by clicking the "advanced" button in the display properties pane. the pull down for the refresh rate is under the "adapter" tab, or the "display" tab I haven't used windows in a while so I forgot. If you are sure you are sending the native rez of the projector and still having issues then there may be an issue with something not described in your question such as distance to the projector or environment like dimmed lights causing signal noise. If this solution doesn't take care of things please post more details like are you using VGA or DVI. Good Luck.

Here's what the User's Manual says:
Using the Remote Control
To advance PowerPoint slides with the projector's remote, you
must connect the USB cable on the projector's computer cable to
the computer. See page 8 for more information.
Point the remote control at the projection screen or at the front or
rear of the projector (not at the computer). The range for optimum
operation is about 30 feet. If you point the remote at the
projection screen, the distance to the screen and back to the projector
must be less than or equal to 30 feet. For best results, point
the remote directly at the projector.
If you are displaying presentations in Microsoft® PowerPoint®,
you can use the remote's Previous and Next buttons to navigate
through your presentation while in Slide Show mode.
