    Dear reader.

    I've got a Acer projector, model H5360 and a new HP Pavilion DV6-6b45eo. All drivers are updated, using the HP autoupdate.

    The problem is that the projector can't show any 3D-graphics at all. When running for instance Oblivion, the screen flickers and goes black... only the sound from the main menu is heard.

    The interesting bit is that the projector supports up to 1280x720 in 120 Hz and is used in 2D-mode.
    When the game is started, it only runs 1280x720 at 50 Hz... and I wonder if this is the reason for the missing picture.

    Is it possible to force it to run a higher frequency?

    Best regards,

    Is the projector properly recognized and listed by name in Device Manager? Are you using the latest version of the video drivers?

    I'm more likely to believe you have a playback issue with the laptop/video chipset. Test at a lower resolution and see if it works.
