I have a Mitsubishi LCD SA51 projector hooked to a Compaq Presario 2500 Laptop. When I play a video through either Windows Media Player, Quick Time or InterActual player I can see the player with all controls but not see the video. It plays on the laptop screen but the video portion does not play on the wall screen. I have tried changing the screen resolution and it doesn't work. Any suggestions.
Thanks

change the monitor set up so that the projector is the main monitor, as
overlay only works on this one.

Laptop. When I play a video through either Windows Media Player, Quick Time
or InterActual player I can see the player with all controls but not see the
video. It plays on the laptop screen but the video portion does not play on
the wall screen. I have tried changing the screen resolution and it doesn't
work. Any suggestions.

> I'm having the same problems with a new laptop which is affecting my business. Ive threatened to sue the manufacturer Evesham and am now told it is to do with macrovision protection and some microsoft software. The get round is to use apple quicktime as your media player. it can be downloaded free from the apple site. The only restriction is that you can't do a full screen unless you upgrade to quicktime profesional.
Hope this helps
