    Ok just solved my problem by installing Nvidia 84.21 driver setup. I just guess the one that was there was the wrong one.

Wow I have never seen this.

but check the resolution of the second screen (on Display propierties) probably the color qualiy is not assigned properly.

Something else: check if there's any other driver for the laptop. sometimes with dell they have more than 1 model of video card on each laptop model proably you installed the incorrect driver?

    Something else,



    Try decreasing the resolution on the computer, sometimes (depending of the projector) if you use a resolution that the projector does not support, 'weird' things can happen.

Dell latitude d800 not switching on ?


I may have addressed this question earlier. If your Dell shows absolutely no sign of life... no LEDs, no nothing and you know for certain the battery and/or power adapter is good then...

If you have access to a docking station (ANY Dell dock that will mate with the bottom connector on your D800), put the D800 in the dock and use the power button on the docking station.

If the laptop powers up, you may have a simply problem with the laptop "Press to turn on" button.

ABOVE THE LAPTOP KEYBOARD...
Use a small flat screwdriver blade to remove the Center Control Cover (just beneath the display/cover hinge and above the F1-F12 keys). Locate the cover's flat ribbon cable connector above the Page Up key. Pull off and carefully reinstall. Try the power button now. If it works, put everything back together. Otherwise seek profession help.

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. Please follow the steps below so that you can use the mirror or clone display
1. Go into Display Control Panel
2. Click Settings tab
3. Click Monitor 2
4. UNCHECK "Extend my Windows desktop..."
5. Click Monitor 1
6. Click Advanced
7. Click ATI Displays tab
8. In here, the display you're trying to clone to should have a red icon in the corner. Click the red icon, then click Apply. It'll turn on the external display and ask you to confirm.

You should now have a mirrored/cloned external display!

Please let me know what happen. Thanks for using Fixya

Hello i have a problem i have a epson ex30 projector and i cant make it work with mt toshiba labtop


Hello:
When connecting a projector or second display to your laptop, you may need to tell the laptop to "clone" or "duplicate" your display onto the second device. This can be done one of two ways:
  1. A key combination on your keyboard.

    A. While holding the Function or Fn button on your keyboard, press the
    Function key that shows a picture of a monitor or a computer and a
    monitor. On my Toshiba laptop, this is F5.

    B. You may have to press the Function key multiple times. If this doesn't
    work, proceed to option 2.

  2. The video card driver's settings.

    A. Navigate to Start>Control Panel>Display

    B. In Windows 7: On the left-hand side of the window, choose "Connect to a
    projector". A dialog box will popup. Choose "Duplicate".

No display on expantion vga port for projector


The problem might be related to your native screen resolution. The C702TU laptop has a resolution of 1280 x 800. Most projectors do not support this resolution and if you cloned the main display, your projector cannot sync at this resolution. Look for an option to output a second display )instead of cloning) within your display settings. If your projector is plugged into your VGA port and turned on, Windows usually detects the second display automatically. Change the resolution on the second screen to something like 1024x768 or 800x600. These resolutions are supported almost universally across projectors.

Trying to connect Inspiron 6000 to TV



If there is no display on your TV, HDTV, or Projector, please make sure that all of your connections are set up properly and that you have enabled the display in the Catalyst Control Center. The connectors that you will be using would be Svideo for TVOUT, DVI-to-HDTV (Component video), VGA-to-HDTV (Component video) for HDTV, and DVI, VGA, or Svideo for the projector.
737-22474-1.jpg Here are the steps to properly setup and enable TV, HDTV, or Projector:
  • Turn off your PC and your TV, HDTV, or Projector.
  • Ensure that your card was installed correctly, as per the Getting Started Guide.
  • Determine if your TV, HDTV, or Projector has a S-Video (for TV), YPbPr for (HDTV), or VGA/DVI for Projector.
  • Looking at the back of your PC, locate the needed connector or the supplied adapter cable; attach one end of the cable to your graphics card and the other to your second display.
  • Turn on your second display then your PC.
If you are connecting an HDTV to your video card, please Click here for detailed instructions on how to set it up correctly.
Starting Windows with TV or Projector Display Enabled The TV screen may become scrambled during the initial Windows® logo display. This is only a temporary effect and your screen will be restored within a few seconds. During start up, your RADEON will go through a sequence of mode settings, during which your TV display will remain blank. This process takes only a few seconds and helps program the TV display.
  • To enable the second Display
  • Right-click anywhere on your desktop
  • Click Catalyst Control center
  • View
  • Advanced view
  • Display manager
  • Detect Displays
  • You should have the second display picture under “Attached displays currently disabled
  • Drag it to the box on top of it
  • Apply
  • OK
If for any reason the second display does not get detected, please do the following:
  • Open the CATALYST CONTROL CENTER
  • Go to Display options
  • Check “Force TV detection” *
  • Apply
  • OK
* Force TV: Allows you to force TV detection if the ATI driver does not automatically detect TV-out connected to the graphics accelerator.
Possible issues:
In case the users display does not natively support HDTV display timings in the EDID, you can add standard HDTV modes so that the usual HDTV resolutions (720p, 1080i, 1080p) are listed in the Display Manager resolutions. You can also create custom HDTV timings to solve any kind of over-scan options (for cases when the windows desktop appears to not fit on the HDTV screen, and the outside boarder is cut off).
For more information on connecting your second display to your Video card, including supported output device combinations, please refer to your user’s manual.
