Cable connection problem

  andrewa 11:48 01 Oct 2010

I recently bought an optima projector which I connect to an AcerAspire5532. The connection to the projector screws in fine but the laptop end keeps coming loose and I loose connection. Is there an alternative way of connecting eg; a usb to the laptop end?

There are such things click here. I have never used one and wonder how it would work with extended desktop and PowerPoint. I regularly link a projector to a laptop and I find the VGA lead pushes on fairly firmly. It could come off if the laptop is moved or the cable tugged/jogged. It may be cheaper and easier to get a better fitting cable or wedge the cable to the laptop.

andrewa - for the benefit of others it would have been nice to know how you resloved this for future reference.
