I run a laptop and projector for my church. We have a Sony VAIO AR520 powerhouse media laptop with Windows Vista. It was originally hooked up through the corresponding HDMI port to our VPL-AW15 Sony Projector but sony has replaced the port once and it quit again. We switched to the vga hookup but because it is analog and not digital, it won't allow us to play our church videos. We bought a UGA adapter usb 2. When we hook up the HDMI adapter and change the VPL-AW15 Sony projector back to the hdmi screen, the projector doesn't talk to the laptop and switch the NVIDIA to a dual screen. I am not able to manually switch it to a dual screen, thus we have no picture on the projector. Before the HDMI port went bad, all we had to do was turn on the projector first and then switch on the laptop and it automatically detected the dual setting and brought up the dual screen for our media shout programming. I have exhausted all the things I know to try so if anyone has ideas please I can use the help. Thanks in advance and God Bless!
