I do not get a dual screen when using my laptop with a projector. The dual screen has worked correctly in the past, but now it has stopped working. How do I correct this problem? The OS is Windows XP.

go to control panel find your graphic card setting or you can find on your right task bar icon. e.g. Intel (R) GMA Driver, depending on what Graphic card do you use. There is a setting on the graphic options for dual screen etc.

if you are using a laptop, there is a shortcut cut e.g. hold FN+F12 - keys depending on laptop brand.

Thanks for the pointers. I can get the screen to work when I hold FN + F8. However, the screen shows the computer icons and the laptop monitor goes black and does not show the icons. I have to work from the screen to get the videos to play instead of using the computer monitor. When I change the dual screen setting on the graphic card, the problem still persists.
