Hi renee_pott, "You can choose the "Mouse Options" in the Control Panel.
First, click on the -> Start button -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Mouse ->
Mouse Properties -> Pointer Options.
Try one 'or' more options:
* Snap To, place a (Check in the box) !
* Hide pointer while typing !
* Show location of pointer when I press the {CTRL key} !

  • Usually the "Mouse" pointer by { Default }, is displayed during a slide presentation, and when the mouse is moved.
  • " Try pressing the {Ctrl + H keys to "Hide" the mouse pointer}."
  • Left-clicking on the "Mouse" button, will advance [forward] the slide show.
  • Pressing Ctrl + A keys, will restore the "Mouse" pointer.
!"Take a moment to rate the help."
Thanks paul7of9

I have a problem with displaying power point presentation


Hello, Chris.

I'm not certain if this was already tried, but here goes:

If you look at you keyboard function (F) keys, you'll see a symbol or the words "CRT/LCD". On my laptop, it is F8, but could be different on yours.

When you connect an external screen to your laptop, if the laptop information doesn't show on the external screen, press your Fn key plus that function key with the symbol or words.

Normally, when you press once, twice and three times, you toggle through various options: your laptop screen only, your external screen only and both screens.

Hope this helps.

I just purchased an Acer X1160 Projector and obviously am not savvy enough to understand what to do to make it work. When connected to my HP Laptop I get the image of my screen saver, but cannot get...


Your computer is probably using the projector as a second screen instead of displaying a copy of the laptop screen.
The quickest way to confirm is to try moving your cursor (mouse) off the right-hand side of the screen. Does it then show up on the projector? If so, then you can grab and move windows back and forth between the two screens.


If that solves it for you, please be sure to click the thumbs-up.
If not, add a comment and I'll try to explain

No display, nothing on screen


Try to hit the Fn+F8 button at the same time 5 or 6 times. This is what is used to turn off your LCD to plug it to a projector or to use a different screen. If that does not work then try to find a desktop monitor and plug it into the 9-pin slot on your laptop. Again hit the FN+F8 buttons again, if the display shows up on the desktop screen then you know that something has burnt out your LCD screen on your laptop.

Dell 2200mp searching for signal


One problem may be that you must tell the PC to send the signal to the external monitor. Usually, if you hold down the function button and hit the F5 key you will see several options on the screen. (Other laptops use different function keys. Look for the one that shows two tv screens. You want the option which shows the laptop and the external monitor.) To advance between options, you hit the F5 button again and it moves over to the next option.

My computer needs me to lower the resolution on the laptop in order to send the signal to the projector. If you also need to do that, you can do it in Control Panel, Display, and Settings, and lower the resolution on screen number 1.

Doing both of these things should work.

Also, confirm that it is finding signals by hooking it to a DVD or video and see if it finds the signal through one of the other ports.

Reset lamp timer


you need to enter factory Menu.

You do so by doing the following:
1).Start the projector.
2).Press keypad <Source> and <Auto> keys simultaneously, enter " Lamp Hour info" layer
3). Press <Source> and <Auto> keys simultaneously again, then enter factor menu.
Do not change anything till you reach Lamp Layer where lamp hour and usage hour is given. If you reset, then all data revert to default - factory reset. you may chage here or under (2).
Let me know if this solves your problem.
