    My laptop quite happily shows me quicktime videos. When I project the image
    using a Benq projector I see the quicktime frame but no image!!! What!!! ...
    it's true! Any ideas? (As a teacher it's a bit hard to have a class
    crowding round a laptop!!

    Ask your students how to do it :)

    How about a 24" (or bigger) flatscreen monitor, hooked up to the PC via a
    typical VGA port -- which almost certainly your laptop has built into it.
    It will be a bit pricey (it would on this side the pond), but end the fire-
    hazard crowding -- and just maybe you can get the school to pay for it as
    an AV resource :)

    Try turning down the hardware acceleration of the graphics card.

    Hiya JohnM.

    Set the projector as primary display.

    Ive had this before...try this:

    rightclick on the desktop, properties, advanced, displays, and set the
    projector as the main screen by clicking on the top left corner and pressing
    apply. now your laptop screen probably will show the black box and your
    projector will show the video.
