We have a Toshiba Satellite M45 and having problems using Presentation mode.  If set it up in dual screen' mode, the output to the projector is great.  If I use presentation mode, Fn + F5, there are vertical lines.  

Any clues?

Thanks

The gma 900 is pretty weak but you might try downloading and installing the omega drivers. http://www.omegadrivers.net/nvidia_winxp.php Make sure you thoroughly(and carefully)uninstall all vestiges of the nvida drivers with a reg cleaner. Do not just use their uninstaller. Use one like this http://www.guru3d.com/index.php?page=driversweeper

The big problem appeared to be the resolution set on the laptop for the projector was too high.  It could only handle 1024 x 768, so once we changed it...it worked fine.

I just wish it would display that..but that is a never ending battle....
