  2. display projection problem

    Hi Leerance,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I can imagine the inconvenience you are experiencing and will certainly help you in the right direction to fix the issue. However, I would appreciate if you could answer a few questions to narrow down the issue in order to provide you with better assistance.

    a. Are you trying to project the screen on a TV or on a different monitor?

    b. How are you trying to project - wirelessly or using an HDMI/VGA cables?

    c. What exactly happens when you try to project your screen?

    d. Do you get any error message?

    I would suggest you to try the steps provided below and check these are helpful in projecting your screen.

    • First you need a video cable for making the physically connection. For better picture quality, you should connect the computer to the TV using standard VGA ports or via the DVI to HDMI cable provided your TV supports these ports.
    • Open the "display settings" in your computer and activate output to the TV screen. You can either mirror content of your computer on the TV or extend the display just like a dual monitor screen.
    • Pick up your TV remote and switch to "External Inputs" from the menu. You will need to change the default "Video 1" to a different selection which may be "HDMI 1" or "Video 2" depending on how you have made the connection.
    Important: Make sure you connect the cable to the TV before turning on the computer as sometimes it may fail to recognize external display.

    You may also need to change the screen resolution of your TV using the Display settings in your Control Panel else the picture may appear distorted.

    If, however, you are trying to project your screen wirelessly, I would suggest you to refer to the information provided in the following article:

    Why exactly is ATi considered be better at HDMI?

    I plug my HDMI cable into the card, then into my TV. Those are the steps that I have to do. All the steps you list make absolutely no sense to me.

    Windows 10, --- HDMI and streaming

    Hi,

    It may be possible that the option for projection is on Second screen only.
    We suggest that you change the display setting, follow these steps:

    • Press Windows and choose Settings.
    • Click System then it should default to Display.
    • On the Multiple displays, select Extend these displays.
    • Click Apply.
    Let us know the outcome.
