    I have a similar problem. I am using an Acer notebook laptop. However, the difference in my situation is that after turning on the computer and pressing the enter button on the projector, the signal from the computer comes through until the "welcome" message from microsoft windows comes on.

I changed my desktop background and now my projector will not display


I would start by cycling this through the f4 option again first. Next I would connect the projector to the computer and then booting up the computer. Next I would disconnect the projector...turn it off, connect the projector again and then power up the projector. Try every combination of sequencing to get the computer and projector to talk to each other. It would not be a bad idea to change out the cable and try a new one as well. If it is a ceiling mounted projector then connect straight to the projector and try that.

Infocus 5000 won't recognize my computer


How about a little more information?
Does the projector turn on?
has it ever worked?
What type of interface (VGA, DVI, HDMI, RCA)
What type of computer (notebook or desktop)

That being said, double check your cable connections and make sure you tell your computer to look for the projector (Dell laptops used to use FN+F8 to switch from laptop to projector). Windows 7 has a menu choice "Connect to Projector". Mac computers - check system preferences and make sure the projector is ON before you plug it into the Mac.

My projector won't project anything. the computer recognizes the projector, but the projector does not recognize the computer. also when i turn on the projector the benq logo doesn't show.


Disconnect all inputs to the BENQ and power on. Do the lights come on as per normal operation. Does the lamp come on when the power button is pressed. Does anything show when the menu is selected.

The projector is not showing a dell computer


Turn off the computer.

Ensure that the projector is connected to the computer and turned on.

Boot the computer.

There is a very good chance that you will now see an image as expected on screen.

If this doesn't work, you may need to manually enable the external VGA output of the computer.

Asuming this is a laptop, Look for the key near the boorom left of the keyboard labelled "Fn". On the top row of "F" keys you will see associated icons and lettering in the same colour. Look for one which says "LCD" or "CRT" or has an icon which may represent a monitor.

Holding down the Fn key, press the top row key whoch you have just lcoated and hold it for approx 0.5 second. Wait 5 seconds. If nothing happens, press it again. On most computers this will cycle through available monitors options which include in various combinations local screen on, local screen off, external screen on and external screen off.

If there is no cycling of screen on/off there is most likely a problem with the computers display drivers.

At teh projector, make sure that you can cycle through all available inputs. There should be an onscreen display to indicate which input is selected. This should correspond to the projector input on the body of the projector to which the computer is connected.

If this doesn't solve the problem, you should try changing the VGA (or DVI) cable as it may have a broken pin or other fault.

Laptop connected to projector get initial message "no signal" then projector continually searches through video, computer 1 and computer 2 - what do I do?


Make sure that you have enabled the 2nd screen output from the laptop. It sounds like there is no signal at the input of the projector. You can check this by connecting a monitor to the 2nd output of the laptop. Often you have to press one of the function keys (F5 possibly) to enable the 2nd screen from a laptop.

I can not connect laptop with projector


Hello,

Instructions
Things You'll Need:
Laptop computer equipped with a VGA, S-Video or HDMI output.
Overhead projector with the applicable input.
VGA, S-Video or HDMI cable.
Software to ready your content for presentation at the correct screen resolution.
DVI-VGA adapter, if you are using a Mac.
Step 1
Learn the different types of video outputs your laptop may or may not support. The three most common types of video outputs used with overhead projectors are Video Graphics Array (VGA), Separated Video (S-Video) and High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI). You need to make sure your laptop has the correct output corresponding to an input on the projector you will use.

Step 2
Weigh the strengths and weaknesses of each types of video input and output. VGA projectors are the most common type, indeed it is likely that any projector in current use will have a VGA input. However, VGA video offers the lowest resolution of the these three types. S-Video offers a higher resolution than VGA, but is prone to screen flicker, especially when you are connecting your laptop to a power supply while presenting, rather than running off the battery. HDMI offers the highest picture quality of the three, and supports audio data transfer as well. However, know that HDMI-equipped laptops and projectors are more expensive than those that utilize the other video transfer formats.

Step 3
Choose a video data transfer standard best suited to your price range and needs. VGA is always the safest bet, but if you are purchasing a new laptop computer, try to find one within your budget with an HDMI output as well, as it will provide the best quality and allow you to transmit audio without the use of extraneous equipment. S-Video inputs are found on nearly every LCD and Plasma television, meaning that if you are giving your presentation connected to a television rather than a projector, this is a viable option as well.

Step 4
Make sure you know how to tell your computer to recognize that you wish to use a projector as a secondary video output device. On Windows-based laptop computers, this usually involves pressing the "Function" (or "Fn") key, followed by one of the numbered "F" buttons along the top of your keyboard. In most cases there will be a graphic of what looks like a television screen on the correct "F" key (e.g. "F4"), but if you aren't sure consult the manual that came with your specific model.

Step 5
Connect your video cable of choice to your projector and your Windows laptop, turn the projector on, and press the correct function key. If you have a solid video card, pressing the same key combination a second time will allow you to view your laptop's screen both on the computer itself and as a projected image simultaneously.

Step 6
Connecting a laptop computer to an overhead projector can be a little trickier. You will need a special adapter to connect to a projector using VGA, as well as the standard VGA cable. This is called a DVI-VGA adapter, and is available both from Apple and other electronics vendors. Plug the adapter to the DVI port on your Macintosh laptop, then plug the VGA cable into the projector and the adapter. Turn on the projector, then press and hold the "F7" key on your Mac. You will be up and running in no time.

Step 7
Try a dry run of your presentation using your own laptop and the same projector you will be using, if possible. It pays to be prepared, and your audience will be able to tell if you are fumbling around for the right function keys on the day you present. Your confidence will help you start your presentation off with a bang, and it will show.

Hope this helps

Reduce the screen resolution to 600x480 for instance and see if the projector can handle the low res output OK. Then increase screen resolution on the PC unitl the error message appears. Try the video menu settings in the acer

Can't get my notebook screan to show


hello,
Indentify the video output options of the computer and the input options of the projector. Most common are VGA and S-Video. use the appropriate cable to connect the two. Your projector may be able to probe its ports to see what signal it is getting.
On your computer. After you make the hardware connection and your projector is set to receive on the correct port, extend your desktop to show on a TV if S-Video, or on a monitor if VGA. To have the screen of your computer to appear on the external screen, use the FN-Fx key combinations. Examine the laptop`s function keys and look for some icon that shows a computer and a screen. Most probably it is the F5 key.
Assuming F5 to be the right key, you press Fn-F5 and an OSD will appear on your computer. You scroll from an icon to the other by pressing F5 while still pressing down the Fn key.

If that does not work, I suggest you check your computer s manual for the right key combinations.
Hope it helps.
