HI,
I'm trying to use an LCD projector to mirror my display and have connected using the VGA connector. The iBook seems to detect it but nothing is displayed on the projector apart from 'No RGB input detected'. I've tried following the instructions given in Help but I'm missing the 'Arrange displays' tab that it talks about and any search tells me that 'this option is missing as the computer does not support an extended desktop', or something along those lines.
I know the projector is OK because I was using it with a Powerbook yesterday but I only have access to an iBook at home and desperately need this to work.
Any suggestions?
Thanks
Rhiannon

Does the projector itself have any manual settings that may need to be "set" when using particular types of input? Does it provide a USB option as well as an alternative, too, perhaps?
Have you clicked on "Detect Displays" in the System Preferences /Displays/ Display tab , after connecting the projector ? Does the iBook have the "screen spanning" hack from http://www.rutemoeller.com/mp/ibook/ibook_e.html installed on it? (might be worth trying if all else fails or removing, by zapping the PRAM, if it is already installed but causing problems)
Tried a different VGA cable for the projector?
Cheers
