    Look for one of the function keys to have an icon of two monitors overlapping
    for instance on a thinkpad its F7 so holding Fn key and pressing F7 will wake that port up.

    When you find the right key, you might have to press it more than once for different modes.
    One mode might be mirroring your main screen, the other will allow you to extend the desktop to another monitor.

    You can right click on the desktop go to properties and click on the Settings Tab
    You should see two monitors 1 and 2 2 will probably be greyed out
    Check the box next to Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor.
    Then click apply.
    To determine if that worked click Identify button whch will display [ 1 ]  [ 2 ]  etc... on each monitor in big white letters.

    1)How are you connecting?
    2)Have you changed the video cable?
    3)Are you running the display at the projector's resolution? (Beware of conflicts between 4:3 and widescreen display formats)
    4)Will an external monitor display if connected instead of the projector?
