Hi everyone: This is my first post so please tell me if I make mistakes. I'm trying to show a DVD movie with an InFocus machine using my laptop. I have the computer set for multiple monitors okay. I get the same desktop appearance on the InFocus as the laptop and when the DVD movie is playing on the laptop the WindowsMedia Player toolbar shows up nicely on both but the video window is black on the InFocus! I'm running WindowsXP professional ed. with WindowsMediaPlayer10. My laptop is an IBM Thinkpad Intel Pentium 1.86 GHz with 512 MB of RAM and an ATI Mobility Radeon X300 graphics card. Any thoughts? dcaporel

Q: I am playing a DVD on my laptop, but the projector displays a blank screen.
A:

This happens when the laptop does not have the resources to display the DVD in two different places at the same time. To solve this issue, press and hold the FN key on the laptop, then press the appropriate function key (F1, F2, F3, etc.). The function key should be labeled “LCD/CRT” or will have a monitor icon on it. You may need to press the function key a couple times. When you do this, you cycle through three settings: the image only on the laptop, the image on both the laptop and projector, and the image only on the projector. You want to set it so the movie appears only on the screen.
