    Hello,
    Anyone had problems connecting their ET1 to a laptop via the 15 pin d-sub conection.
    My PC will not recognise the projector at all.
    Ihave tried installing latest graphics drivers but nothing....all i get is no signal.
    The pc and cable are fine as I can connect to an other projector no probs.

    Any ideas people? I am beginning to suspect a dead computer port on the projector .

    cheers
    john

    I take it you've enabled the external VGA port - my Hewlett Packard laptop uses the Fn F4 key combination.

    It's possible the PJ can't sync to the resolution/refresh rate from the Laptop (will normally match that of the laptop's screen).

    I've had my ET1 running at 1280x1024 and 1280x720 (both 60hz) and it scalled them OK.

    There is a list of resolutions/refresh rates in the manual, ensure you're sending one of these. Check the PJ on another PC is the next step - otherwise it does sound like a defective PJ
