someone brung in a leveno x1 laptop and says the display port isnt working. he needs it working on projectors that only have vga and he already has the adaptor. i plugged it in an a lcd and it works just fine but on any projector, it doesnt work. ive updated the drivers from leveno and it still doesnt work. ive tried different resolutions and nothing either. has anyone had this problem before or can think of a solution? thanks

Did you try to change the source for the picture on the projector? It might be just the wrong port.

On projectors, you normally need to mirror the screens, not expand it.

Ctrl (or Function) F7 changes the behavior of the screen onto the projector. Try this and see what happens.
