Problems with MS Office applications (they zoom automatically to maximum) on Dell D610 only when connected to projector.

Notebook: Dell D601 running Windows XP Prof Eng, SP2, MS Office Small Business Edition 2003 Eng. Drivers for MS Natural Ergonomic Keybord 4000 are installed (I am using it when working at the office).Graphic Card - ATI Mobility Radeon X300.

After connecting the notebook to any projector (without docking station) when opening any MS Office document like eg. Powerpoint or Word it is automatically zoomed to maximum. I can manualy change the zoom to 100% but than it slowly "grows" again by itself.

It looks like some kind of keyboard shortcuts or keyboard remappings are activated because the keyboard behaves as well differently - eg Ctr+C does not work for copy.
When disconnecting from the projector everything goes back to normal.
