Question about Computers & Internet

Dell 1201MP Projector. The projector works fine with my Toshiba laptop. Everything that displays on the monitor is projected. However, when I want to project a video CD and play through Windows Media player or want to project a DVD it does not project the video. I see all the controls and tabs and my pointer but now video. Can you help?

    I am using the S-video connection from the laptop to the projector. I also tried the monitor connection as well. There is an input for the RS232 on the projector but no RS232 output from the laptop.

    Thanks, I will see if I can find a RS232 cable. Will need to visit computer store tomorrow.

It's an "anti-piracy" method to stop you from playing a dvd on your computer and running the other monitor connection to some sort of recording device to easily copy the movie. You need to set the projector as your primary monitor, and then it should work.


It also is partially related to the fact that hardware video overlays (which most video players use) can only be done on the primary monitor, but there are ways around that. Also, I don't know what OS you're using, but I'd suspect that Vista/7 probably don't use the old hardware overlays anyway.

Let me know what you find, set the projector as the primary display in your video settings and go from there....

Thanks,
Tim

Possible that the connection you are using is not supporting the video format. If you are using the USB connection then the video format is not supporting to stream the video.
If you can use the monitor out connection-RS232- of the projector connected to the PC, then the video will work . The PC must be set in the display for the secondary monitor setting selecting the display setting if this is not detected automatically.
The audio can be connected to the amplifier to get the sound.
Please confirm if this connection was used.

    If you can use the RS 232 connection this problem will be solved, it is possible that the S-video connection is not supporting the media player. Please try with another player if this supports the projector.

The projector doesn't work with my laptop


Have you opted to switch display to the printer using the function key with either F4 or F5, you will see the laptop symbol with a square next to it.

I think option 2 showing two screens with no 1 in them works best with Toshiba.

If you try this and fail, you can look at the From your desktop, Proerties, Settings, Display - Option Plug and Play!

Let me know how you get on with the above.

Monitor Display on TV


Try the following:
Power up the projector first. With the laptop hooked up but not powered on once projector is warming up begin booting laptop. If there is still no display once its projector is fully warmed up and laptop booted you can try using the (fn) key with the laptop monitor switching function key usually F4 which switches the display monitor to show on external, external and laptop or just laptop. If this all fails try changing resolution of laptop to something that might be more projector friendly.
Let me know how you go.
