Connect the data projector to the video port on the HP, then power up the data projector first. Then boot up the HP laptop, the video will automatically divert to the data projector.
If this doesn't work then the screen resolution on the laptop may be set too high. Reduce the laptop's screen resolution to 1024X768 and try again.
You can toggle between the laptop screen and data projector or have both the data projector and the laptop screen displayed on together by holding down the Fn key and then press the F4 key, this cycles between the the laptop screen and data projector.

Hello Anneli,
You can simply do this by 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.
If that doesn't work in some cases doing a manually configuring multiple displays will often vary from laptop to laptop, depending on the graphics chip and software installed. In most cases, you can navigate to the Control Panel, then click on Displays, and then on Settings.

Hi We have a HP - f0f219158e118e83--61c9b675-11b08cb53ea--4d1c-364156565-w580h580.jpgOn this screen you should see two numbered boxes, labeled 1 and 2. Clicking "Identify" should flash a number on the screen to indicate which monitor is which. Below this is a slider that set's the resolution and color depth of the output. The way this works, click the monitor (1 or 2) then make changes to the resolution and color depth (Don't forget to hit the Apply button after changes are made)

If there's no picture on the projector, most likely the VGA output to that projector is disabled. Click on the number that did not flash on the notebook screen. Right click this number, and select "Enable Display." In the resolution slider (in ksharp's case), slide it to 1024x768, and select 32 or 24 bit color depth. Hit Apply.


Hope this helps.

It should be the third button to the right from the top byt the power button. Here is a link to a pdf that shows where everything is on your model.
