Need help! I have a presentation tomorrow and can't get my projector to find signal for my dell inspiron. This has been working for well over a year and has now just started this today.

have you tried other projectors? is your laptop set to presentation mode?
is the cable you are using to connect in working condition?

Thanks for your help. I solved the problem and it wasn't the projector. Before dashing out to drop some cash on a new one I tried my old one on another laptop and it worked. The original computer was in presintation mode all the time. My cable was fine so I kept starting and restarting the original computer and it finaly connected. Just one of those quirky days I guess. Thanks for your help!

sometimes it helps to turn the presentation mode on/off, instead of keeping it on all the time.

alright, glad you've worked it out without any cash spendings
