I have an ASUS PRO50VL Laptop and I am TOTALLY UNABLE to find a suitable driver for my Acer PH110 Projector which will work with Windows Vista 32bit. I want to use it via a USB port instead of the VGA port, as a bad design in the laptop means I do not have Support screw holes for the VGA cable. This results in having to use a bit of "Blue Tack" to hold the cable, to stop it falling out all the time.
ACER have fobbed me off to ASUS and ASUS have fobbed me off to ACER. The site ACER told me to go to (support.acer-euro.com) is worse than useless.

Hi, I had the same problem all you have to do is connect something to the projector like a laptop or dvd player so it has a signal. Once the picture comes up of what you are projecting from the laptop or dvd player you can enter the menu and reset the lamp hours. Hope this works for you if not please let me know.
I believe the problem is that your PowerBook does not have the proper drivers for this projector. The maximum resolution on it should be 1600 x 1200, however Dell only certifies this with (and provides drivers for) Windows XP and Vista. I have been unable to find Macintosh drivers for it, and think it unlikely they exist.
Without the exact drivers, your computer will find the best match. That usually means you cannot use advanced features, such as higher resolutions, with the projector.
Sorry I don't have better news for you. If you perhaps copied your presentation over to a Windows laptop and connected it, it might work. I'm honestly rather disappointed in Dell for not providing Mac drivers for this.
power ON your projector and laptop
connect your laptop and projector with VGA cable and press
if your laptop PANASONIC or NEC (Fn+F3) ACER, HP,SHARP,TOSHIBA (Fn+F5) LENOVO, SONY (Fn+F7)
DELL, EPSON (Fn+F8)
If problem exist remove the VGA driver in your laptop and reinstall the correct driver not a standard display driver
Hi, what you need to do is reset the lamp hours to get the red light to go if it is a new lamp. To do that plug in a source such as a laptop or dvd player. When the display from the laptop or picture comes up go into the menu and reset the lamp hours I had the same problem. Hope this works if not let me know.
