    What video outputs do you have on ur laptop?
    There can be S-VIDEO, Just a normal video out, Monitor out. (usually monitor out if ur projector supports it)

    All depends.

    you using a laptop or a desktop? A laptop usually has a hot key to send a signal to the projector. The desktop might not have one. If I can remember right, I think it's one of the F keys. I don't have a laptop at home.

    oh duh, im going to bed now. The laptop should have a hot key to send a signal. All you have to do is hit it and the projector starts projecting your desktop.

    If not, once hooked up you may have to go into the menu on your projector and do 'input select'
