Press the blue FN button and one of the F1-F12 buttons. It should show two screens. Also make sure you have changed the display settings in windows. Under the advanced Tab check the box that says "extend my desktop to this screen" after selecting the 2nd screen in the window above it.

Can i play the image which is Jpg format directly on projector saved in USB?

I started an answer to this post earlier, but my browser closed
Here we go-
Simple answer is yes, if your projector has a USB slot. If so, the ability to view it will be a choice in the projector's set up menu
If it does not have a USB slot, then it is still possible to view it using your computer
Step 1: turn off computer & projector, then get this type of cable (seen below)
Step 2: connect cable to the VGA ports on your projector & computer. On the computer, this is where your monitor us currently connected. It will only fit on the ports intended for this purpose, so don't worry about goofing it up
Step 3: turn both computer & projector on. Newer computers will recognize the connection automatically. For laptops, there will be a button to push (on the top row of keys usually). It looks like a monitor most times.
You may need to go into the projector's set up menu to specify which connection. It should say VGA. Select that and you will be able to project your computer/laptop screen.
Insert the USB media (thumb drive?) into the slot on the computer and on newer computers, a notice will appear asking you what you want to do with the newly inserted device. Select "view file/contents on drive", then choose the JPG file(s) you wish to view
Good luck & Let me know if you need further assistance

Does Lenovo 3000 Y410 support dual monitors


1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF.
Connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the back of the laptop.

The VGA port is on the right side, as you view the back of the laptop.
This is a basic example of a VGA cable, and a VGA port, (Connector),

NOTE* Color does Not matter.

You can use a CRT monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.

By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

IF not;
Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the F3 key.

There are at least 3 display options;

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY

2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor

3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Hold the Fn key down, and tap again on the F3 key.

(The Fn key is down at the bottom LEFT corner of the Keyboard.
The F3 key is at the top of the Keyboard.
The F3 key is the Display Toggle-Over key )

Need more information post in a Comment.

My imb t40 laptop keep getting a black screen if it get moved or bumped a lil

Your issue is Board Flex... The t40/t41 have a split mid section and over time the lifting of the laptop from the base will flex the motherboard which can create a short in the layers of the board, it can also lift the heatsink from the graphics chip which will trigger the thermal controller,
put pressure on the palmrest area to the left side of the touchpad.. then attempt to move the laptop.. see if it stops the shutting down

Computer is on, black screen?

If you have an external monitor try hooking that up, if it works then either your LCD is bad orTry toggling the Fn + the function keys with a monitor on it You may have your output mode switch to the external port on your laptop.
If you power it on and you see nothing at all, not even the BIOS then your motherboard is toast

KVM Monitor resolution out of frequency and will not display

Restart your system in a VGA mode (you will find this below Safe Mode, by pressing F8 before windows is loading) This way yours screen resolution will be at the very low frequency then you can change it back to the resolution you like. Eg. 800x600 or 1024x768. Remember to keep your Screen refresh rate lower like 75Mhz
