I have a presentation in exactly 19 hours and I can't connect my laptop to my projector. Great.

 

I have a Hp pavilion entertainment PC, running 64-bit windows 10. I have a presentation tonight, for which I borrowed a colleague's Epson VS240 projector. I have tried to install multiple drivers, and my laptop simply will not connect. I have both an HDMI and USB cords being used, neither is working. I suspect there is something not properly installed on my computer.

 

PLEEEEAASE help. This presentation is for a capstone project for school. I finish this, and i graduate in three weeks. Not even joking.

Google: "windows 7" how do you connect to a projector

 

First hit:

A handy shortcut to connect to a projector is to press Ctrl+Windows logo key+P. This displays the Projectorsettings window where you can choose how to display your desktop. Click one of four display settings: Show Desktop Only On Computer Display uses your current display (on a laptop, that's the display in the lid).

[bleep], I meant windows 10. I'm used to my computer, I wasn't thinking. This is for my wife's computer. My bad.

I've gone into settings > system > display, tried to 'detect' another display, but the computer 'didn't detect another display'. I've tried downloading the drivers for this projector, but still no avail.
