laptop to projecter

  Binary Ghost (the only Paul) 18:29 05 Jul 2007

I have a sony xga vpl ex1 projecter, and I regulary connect it to my laptop to watch films, The thing is, it makes its own mind up when it wants to work correct. It only works when I cose the laptop lid down, and for the past few weeks its decided to show everything extremly large so i cant use it. Does any one no of any software you can use to control a projecter?

All the problems is with the laptop settings check your laptop settings, display res set to a larger size than the projector can handle, check the FN+F8 keys you must hold the FN key down and press F8 or the key that show CRT/LCD

FN function F8 Display settings

1 click laptop display only
2 click external display only
3 click both display on

Projectors are dumb terminals it only show what is coming from the display card.

There is no software installed in any projector
