Toshiba Laptop and Dell Projector - don't talk!!

  matt-few 17:04 01 Nov 2008


I have a Toshiba Satelite Pro M70 laptop and Dell 3400MP Projector, but I can't get the projector to work with the laptop. It works with friends and colleagues laptops without any problems, but not with my laptop!!!

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

you need to switch to the vga output by using a key combination such as Fn F7.
look for a symbol of monitor on one of the keys.

And make sure your resolution is not set too high for the projector to handle.

Thanks for your help Fruit Bat and DieSse.

Although I had already changed the screen resolution to 800 x 600, the toshiba desktop image was set to 1280 x 800. When I changed this to a standard Windows XP desktop image, the projector starting working ok.

So, thanks again for your help.
