Hi, Try lowering your laptop's resolution (Display Properties) to 1024x768 (or even lower like 800x600), before fn + F8. You can also try lowering the Monitor's screen refresh rate (60Hx). Another setting you can check is Advanced Settings tab or button and check settings for projector (instead of TV). If it works in the lower settings, you can try moving the settings higher until it quits again. If the above does not fix your problem, you may need to re-install your graphics/video driver. Hope this gives you an idea. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector

You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods.
1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor.
2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times.
Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :-
IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7
HP and Compaq = Fn + F4
Toshiba = Fn + F5
ASUS and Dell = Fn + F8
