Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a Gateway mx3422 notebook. I cannot get the display to clone when I hook it up to a projector. The notebook screen goes black and the display shows on the projection screen.

Answers :

So, as soon as you hook up the projector, the LCD goes blank? 2 things control the output, the function key to enable the external video and the display settings in Windows. If Windows shows 2 displays (Control Panel, Display, Settings), then change the setting there to enable cloning. If it only shows one display, try the function key for the external video--something like function key F10 or thereabouts. (Well there could be 3 things, the other would be the display driver.)

Bummer, typed that, then found:

Q: How do I view the notebook display on an external monitor or projector in Windows XP?A: You\015\012can use your notebook for giving presentations by connecting an\015\012external monitor or projector to your monitor (VGA) port. Your notebook\015\012supports simultaneous LCD and CRT display. Simultaneous display lets\015\012you control the presentation from your notebook and at the same time\015\012face your audience.\015\012\015\012Note: If an external monitor or\015\012projector is connected and you close the LCD panel, your notebook turns\015\012off the LCD panel, but does not enter Standby mode.\015\012
\015\012Follow these steps to use a projector or external monitor.\015\012
  1. Turn off your notebook.\015\012\015\012
  2. \015\012
  3. Plug the projector or monitor cable into the VGA port on your notebook or the optional port replicator. \015\012\015\012
  4. \015\012
  5. Turn on your notebook.\015\012\015\012
  6. \015\012
  7. Plug the projector's or monitor's power cord into an AC\015\012power source and turn it on. Windows® recognizes the new hardware and\015\012searches for its driver. You may need to install the driver from the\015\012disc supplied by the manufacturer or download the driver from the\015\012manufacturer's Web site.\015\012\015\012
  8. \015\012
  9. After the driver is installed, right-click any empty space on the desktop, and then click Properties. \015\012\015\012
  10. \015\012
  11. In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.\015\012\015\012
  12. \015\012
  13. On the Settings tab, right-click the second monitor icon (labeled 2), and then click Attached. \015\012\015\012
  14. \015\012
  15. Click Apply.\015\012\015\012
  16. \015\012
  17. Adjust properties such as Screen Resolution or Color Quality if necessary.\015\012\015\012
  18. \015\012
  19. Click OK.\015\012
\015\012\015\012Note: Press FN+F4 to switch between viewing the display on the LCD panel and viewing the display on the projector or monitor.\015\012\011\011
