I actually have two Acer laptops in our school district that seemed to have lost their VGA connectivity (the projector works fine with other systems). When connected to the laptop the projector just displays a blue screen. Any thoughts?
Here is the deal. Right-click on desktop. Choose settings. Right-click on screen #2. Click on apply for new settings. The one additional problem you may encounter is the fact that the projector will display an area to the right of your laptop screen. In other words, move your mouse past the right edge on laptop screen. Look at projector image. See your mouse?

You don't say whether or not the "adapter" is simply a gender-changer, or if it actually converts the digital signal from the HDMI port to an analog one for the VGA port. Some monitors have both analog and digital input capability and can automatically adapt to the the digital signal, even if applied to the VGA (analog) port. Other devices are not so smart and need an actual digital-to-analog converter style adapter.
power ON your projector and laptop
connect your laptop and projector with VGA cable and press
if your laptop PANASONIC or NEC (Fn+F3) ACER, HP,SHARP,TOSHIBA (Fn+F5) LENOVO, SONY (Fn+F7)
DELL, EPSON (Fn+F8)
If problem exist remove the VGA driver in your laptop and reinstall the correct driver not a standard display driver
The Acer One netbook has a mini-VGA port on its left side. Page 10 of Acer's QuickGuide shows the port as item 3 External display (VGA) port. But unfortunately, the description shown for it is incorrect.
From your description, your projector's lead likely has a mini-VGA connector on the end as pictured. The connector can simply be plugged into the mini-VGA port but there are no holes beside the port for screws so it would just be a friction fit which should be sufficiently secure for most puposes. The connector and port are mini-DB 15 male and female respectively and can only fit one-way. The port has the wide side of the D on top so you would have to turn the pictured connector over to be able to plug it into the port. Windows XP should be able to detect the projector via plug-and-play installing any display drivers if required. Page 8 of Acer's UserGuide describes Hotkey + Display toggle which switches display output between the display screen, external monitor (if connected) and both. Pressing + with the projector plugged in will bring up a window in the middle of the screen allowing the selection of internal display, external display, both, or a 800x600 VGA projector. If the display is on the projector, unplugging the cable should automatically revert display back to the internal screen. For VGA see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector
1)Plug in either the vga or dvi into both the projector and the laptop. 2)Plug in the power cord to the projector,then turn the projector on. 3)Once it has past its warm-up period,find the function key on your laptop.(Fn) 4)Along the F1,F2,F3 ect keys,press find the one with the picture of the display. 5)When you have found it,hold down Fn and press the display key down until it clones the laptop and projector.
The Aspire One has an external VGA port so you will use that and a VGA cable to connect to the projector. You may have to press the Display mode button (typically Fn+one of the function keys with the rectangle 'display' on it) to enable the external VGA port.
just connect the vga cable to vga port of laptop and to the projector and in projector choose the source of display vga or pc mode and in laptop press f5 button or right click on desktop and choose the display mode lcd +monitor it will show you the display on projector. Have a nice day and do not forget to rate please...!
Hello. There is no "device" needed to connect the units together...You'll need a cable that is"mini display port to vga". In order to connect the projector to the laptop, the cable has to have the special Apple connector which fits into a specific socket on the back of the laptop. The other end is just a standard vga connector which is plugged into the computer input on the projector. Hope I helped you!
Turn on the projector and laptop and connect the vga cord to the projector and the laptop (making sure there is a secure connection so it is tight but not overtight) and hold down function when your operating system has started (windows only mac is different) and press either F1 F2 F3 F4 or which ever one has the picture,icon, of the laptop and the external display.
