laptop to projector problems

  widdy 12:29 03 Mar 2008

I am using an HP ze5232 laptop connected to an Optoma EP752 digital projector
Problem is i can see the background of my desk top but no program icons. This is on the projected image, Laptop screen is ok all of the time.
During boot up all the usual screens are displayed inc windows XP logos etc.
Cant think where to go next, any suggestions welcomed

try setting up monitor properties? or graphics card properties?

Try pressing the FN & F8 key combination on the laptop or FN & F5 key combination?

When you have two screens for your computer you can either clone the main screen on to the second screen or you can extend the desktop area. It sounds as if you have extend selected while you want the clone option. Does the mouse pointer travel to the right side of the laptop monitor then appear at the left hand side of the projector display?
This selection will either be made in software provided by the graphics chip manufacturer or within Windows (try looking under the Advanced tab in display settings).
