after trying everything i could, again..
i tried to format and do a fresh install of windows..
installed windows XP PRO SP2 with Ie6.
tried removing the notebook battery, no luck.
tried switching cables, tried everything.. i can think of.
i am actually thinking about installing win98 on it, to test..
but i know it can be it, because other computers with winxp-sp2 works on this projector.
and this note, with this windows install, works on other projectors.
i tried using the s-video out instead of the vga-out, no luck, exact same behavior.
i am out of ideas.
i have NO IDEA what can it be.
and i leave work now, and i have by monday night to get this done.
any help is appreciated.
