    Strange one with PC and projector

    So came to a hall projector today and it would not work. Setup is PC connects straight to vga faceplate and then a hitachi ultra short throw projector. These are the steps I have taken

    It works fine with a laptop connected and displays on both laptop and screen
    Connected the PC to a monitor and dropped the res down to 1024 x 768 ... and all worked fine
    Projector image is fine

    any ideas anyone?

    ensured that the graphics card driver(s) are up to date ? Also what graphics card is or do the PC's / desktops use ? As I know with NVidia cards - you had to or were better off using a slightly older driver as the latest drivers could / can be buggy / cause issues etc

    I've had random results like this with a dodgy vga cable. Trying swap testing the vga coming out of the PC.
