Having problems with your Compaq PC Laptops ?

I can't get the display from my laptop to project to a screen.

\015 I don't have the manual for my Compaq Presario R3000. I have it connected to an Epson Powerlite 51C/71C multimedia projector. I get a display on my laptop but none on the projection screen.\015

Answers :

If you connect the data projector to your laptop and power it up first then your laptop, the video will switch to the data projector automatically.
\015\012If you had powered up the laptop first then you can divert the video information to the external video port/data projector by holding the Fn key and then press F4 key.
\015\012You can toggle between the LCD screen, the data projector or both LCD and data project together using the Fn & F4 keys.
