Not sure how much help this will be but from what I'm reading it sounds as if your trying to use the projector as a monitor for your pc. When you plug it into your pc, if you are running windows you may need to go to the 'Control Panel' in the start menu. Then click on 'Appearance and Personalization'.
Click on 'Personalization' and then click 'Display Settings'.
If you click on the box with '2' in it (the one that represents a second monitor) you can click a check box that will set it as your main monitor.

It may mean that your display wont look correct on the original monitor but you can always switch it back when your not using the projector.

But you would proberly have to do this everytime yo plug the projector in (can't say for sure)

Hi, you know that some pc can not connect to projector automatically so you need to press the functional key on your keyboard which is F4 or you will see an external monitor design on the functional key press it

Need drivers for epson projector


HiA projector is just a monitor with a lens on the front. It does not need drivers. Just connect it to your video out-put port (all macbook pros have one) Drivers are only needed for projectors that connect by USB.

My toshiba satellite l355 won't show the video through an epson multimedia projector. What is wrong?


Occasionally this happens if you have had the computer hooked to a TV. I have had to disable the existing icon in Catalyst Control, and reboot. It should then find the projector, unless you have it set to manually find. There are several ways you can enable the projector, but they all boil down to the computer has to find the projector connection before anything else will happen. If it thinks there is still a tv hooked up, it will not work with the projector.

How do i hook my samsung spl300 projector to my mac book pro


You can connect your Projector with the Mac Book Pro; However the problem is, mac comes with a DVI connector and your projector uses a VGA one.
You need to buy a DVI to VGA adapter from Apple if you don't have one already. You can buy it from the local apple stores or an online apple store.
There are two types of DVI-VGA adapters available (Please check the below images and see which one fits your Mac and go for it). Apple DVI to VGA Display Adapter
Apple Mini DVI to VGA Adapter Once you decided which one you need, go to an apple store or online apple shop and buy one.
Hope This helps.best regardsNextDoorNerd
