This sounds like a driver or software issue. Check Dell's support site for any projector related drivers or software, and also check the projector manufacturer's site for drivers or software. You might also look for any Windows media player updates.

We are tring to hook up our projector to our laptop.


Nice! Putting your *generic* laptop on a *generic* projector can look awesome for movies, gaming or just surfing. It all depends on the connection you use.

To make the connection, you need to choose a cable that both the *generic* laptop and the *generic* projector support. Here's the common ones, in order of awesome (most to least):
HDMI,
DVI,
RGB/VGA,
Component,
S-Video,
Composite

Of course, with adapters you can basically connect any of these types into any other type.

So now you've connected them both, but there's no picture! Don't fret; there's still more to do. First, make sure the *generic* projector is on the right input channel. Use your remote or the buttons on the *generic* projector itself to turn to it.

Then you have to set up the *generic* laptop. Many different laptops these days will let you just press the "FN" key along with the "F5" key to switch to projector mode. Pressing it again will switch which type of mode it's in (duplicate, extend or projector only). You can also do this in your computer settings, though.

On Windows 7:
"Windows Key" + "P".
-or-
Start Menu > Control Panel. If Control Panel is in Classic View, go to Display > Adjust Resolution(it's on the left side toolbar). Otherwise, click on "Adjust Screen Resolution" under the Appearances and Personalization category. Click on the second monitor, then make a selection from the "Multiple Displays" option.

On Windows Vista:
Start Menu > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Personalization > Display Settings > Monitor (it's a tab). Select the second display from the Display drop-down menu then check the box for "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor"

On Windows XP:
Right-click the desktop > Properties > Settings (it's a tab). Select the second display from the Display drop-down menu, then check the box for "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor"

On Mac:
It's already set up! Seriously, it's plug and play; very awesome. To change the mode (mirroring/duplicate, extended), goto Display Preferences > Arrangement.

On Linux:
I have no idea, so I Googled it for you. You're welcome.

There! Your *generic* laptop is now connected to your *generic* projector. Enjoy your gaming/videos/web browsing/etc!

  2. In the Tasks list click on "Connect to a projector or other external display" link,
  3. The Windows Mobility Center appears, in the presentation settings box click the turn on button to turn on projector,
  4. Now your screen will show up on projector screen around large display as well as your own computer screen,
  5. If you want to change the presentation options click the Projector icon inside presentation setting box,
  6. The Presentation Settings Windows appears, if you turned on the projector the "I am currently giving a presentation" checkbox is selected,

Clearco HD 9000 connected but 'no signal' from PC. Thanks


This projector has a maximum input resolution of 800 x 600, so if your computer is set to a higher one (which it probably is) and the projector is connected to your primary output, you'll see nothing. Here's what to do:
If you have 2 outputs as most video cards do nowadays connect the projector to one and the PC to the other. (you may need a DVI-VGA adaptor, usually one comes with your video card if you do).

Right click on an empty bit of desktop. A pop-up menu will appear and one of the items will be the control panel for your video card (usually nVidia or ATI). Start that up, and there will be an option to connect multiple monitors, as well whether you want cloned output or an extended desktop. You can set your resolution here. Make the projector your secondary monitor. It does not matter if it cloned or and extended desktop - if it is extended you can drag media player into it and maximize it to watch films etc, but cloned is best for games. make sure the reolution of the secondary monitor is no more than 1024x768.

If you have only one video ouput from your PC, go into video settings as before and just make sure that the resolution is set to 1024 x 768 or lower before you connect the projector.

When connected, keep pressing the input button until it toggles to VGA mode. Should work now.

Projector works fine, but does not show video


Hey. Sounds like you are using some kind of dual-view or extended desktop via the computer for video. This may sometimes be a problem. If you can see the desktop but no video using the projector it is not a projector problem. It is probably your grapic card och software problem.

Try different setups in the graphic cards settings, like the projector as primary monitor etc. That usually solves the problem.

LG Monitor Unable to Correctly Detect VGA Input


the problem is not the monitor.To be able to correctly set a dual display mode you need to configure you video card to do so. This is accomplished in your video card's control panel. There are various modes:
Clone: it simply clone the screen you'll have the same output on both monitors.
Extend: this will extend your desktop and make it one big screen.
theres another mode to show video only on one screen while the other display regular desktop activities you'll have to experiment.
the procedures for doing this varies depending on you video card: ati, nvidia, or Intel.

Can see frame but cannot see movie


Is it a downloaded movie? You possibly do not have the right codec to view it. Download VLC media player. It is free open-source software that can play practically any video format.

Monitor Problem


1. Try using a different media player like k-lite windows media player classic or GOM player.

2. Is the lcd set at it's native resolution ? Set it to native resolution.

3. Has the driver for the lcd been installed and does it show up properly in device manager ? Install the lcd driver if applicable.

4. What are your system's specs, especially graphic card ?

5. Has the latest graphic card drivers been installed ? Install latest drivers.

6. Does using VGA or DVI make any difference ?

7. You would've probably already checked windows media player settings.

Hopefully some of these will solve the problem.
