Cannot project my notebook screen image onto my Plasma Project, plese help !

Hi to all,

I am a current user of Toshiba Satellite Pro 4300 Series Note book with windows 98 SE with 64 MB RAM. I have a hard time to project my notebook screen image onto the Plasma Display in my conference room when I press Fn + F5 function key.

So Before I send you this email I did the followings:

(1) I did download the latest BIOS (version 2.70 for Satellite Pro 4200-4300 series) and install it onto my laptop.

(2)I have chosen simultaneous displays under TSETUP (Refer to the Toshiba User's Manual of my laptop at 8-33). This does not help at all.

(3) I did a control experiment and used 3 different models of Toshiba laptops to connect to LCD Projector Plasma Panel Screen :

(a)Satellite220 CDS (Win98SE)
(b)Satellite Pro 430 CDT(Win98SE)
(c)Satellite Pro 435 CDS(Win98SE)

All three of them are running fine and I can see both image on my laptop LCD screen and the LCD projector Panel when I press Fn + F5. (under 256, 16 bits color with 800 X600 or 1024 X 768 resolution)

(4) I also connect a HP laptop notebook and the image can show up at both LCD screen at the same by using Fn + F5.

So at least to this point, I think there is nothing wrong between the connection of the laptop and the Plasma displays. So I would like to know what should I do next to rectify the problem.

Please advise. Thank you for your help in advance.

Try to lower your verticle RefreshRate to 75 or less Hz.

I had the problem with a Sony VPL 900 plasma dataprojector (Beamer)
It says nothing and there was no picture, even when connecting a Standard monitor on the output of the Laptop who actually shows a fine picture there.

There could be a limitation to RefreshRate in a PLasma Proyector such I had encountered.
