    Toshiba Projecting Fault A300/L450/C660

    We have purchased Toshiba Laptops for the last few years, A300 L450's and now C660's all seem to suffer from this same problem.

    When you want to project via FN + F5 the clone option doesn't appear.. no options appear but the default LCD.. like it can't detect the projector. Rebooting always fixes the problem. And we also discovered that if you open PowerDVD or Powerpoint and then goto project it broke.. close the programs it worked! but now even that isn't guaranteed and they have to reboot.

    Just wonder if anybody else has these laptops and have similar issues

    Happens with varying model projectors too,

    Cheers!

    we had a similar problem where our projector software was turning off the hardware acceleration which turns off features like cloning etc. for windows 7 its

    1. Open Screen Resolution by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, and then, under Appearance and Personalization, clicking Adjust screen resolution.

    2. Click Advanced settings.

    3. Click the Troubleshoot tab, and then click Change settings. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    4. Move the Hardware Acceleration slider to Full.

    for windows xp
    1. open display properties in control pannel and click on the settings tab.

    2. Click Advanced settings.

    3. Click the Troubleshoot tab, and then click Change settings. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    4. Move the Hardware Acceleration slider to Full.

    We have Dell laptops for the teachers here. All of them have to have the image sent to the projector before a video is played.
