DVD Disk projection problem with HP laptop

By bldsm ·
HP NX9010 Notebook
The above notebook is used to play DVDs we make in house and work on every other machine we have. However when we use this notebook to play onto a screen thru our Hitachi projector we can see the computer desktop screen and the outside of the WinDVD player but not the actual video. The HP NX9010 Notebook has a Multiple Monitor Radeon IGP 345M with one screen set to 1028 x whatever it is and the 2nd to 1280 x .... so when we play PPTs the PPT won't over hang the screen.

Other laptops play the dvd on screen - what is wrong with this one?

Hi Bruce,

just to clarify, can you watch the dvd when it plays on the laptop screen?

Sounds like the way that the Display is setup. If it has a multiple Display Video Out you effectively have 2 screens available go into the Settings by right clicking on the desktop then left click properties then settings and see what is =visible in the Monitor images if there are 2 monitors highlighted you need to drag and drop the second monitor into where you want it and you can not drop it onto the existing monitor so you can have it to the Left/Right/Top/Bottom of your monitor and then drag things onto the screen by holding down the left mouse key and dragging it onto the screen.

If like most LT's the second output is a duplicate of the LT's monitor and you can not see the contents of the screen properly try it on a monitor and preferable a CRT one not an LCD or TFT or Plasma one as if you do not have XP or latter installed it might not work properly. If you are getting a clear picture on the monitor and LT's screen then go back to the projector and try it again but I'm betting that you'll find the monitor isn't working properly so it is most likely a M'Board problem in the HP unit so backup all the data or better still remove the HDD fit a blank one and send it back to HP for repair.
