A couple of Windows 10 users have been saying that they are unable to display to a VGA projector in Windows 10. Here are a couple of basic fixes that you could try for this problem.
A few fresh Windows 10 users have been complaining about the fact that they have various problems with their VGA projector. Here’s what one affected user has been saying:
I have an Acer One S1002 laptop/tablet. I use the Micro HDMI output with a Micro HDMI to VGA adapter. This worked properly when I originally purchased the laptop, but, after upgrade to Windows 10, I have not been able to project to a VGA projector. The laptop recognized that the second display is there, but it does not extend or duplicate the screen.
This works fairly well with my Micro HDMI to HDMI adapter (although, occasionally, the signal will disappear for about 2 seconds before returning. I have also upgraded the Intel graphics drivers for the computer, but no change.
So, as we can see, the problem only appeared after the Windows 10 upgrade. It goes without saying that you should update your drivers, and that’s what the user in question did, as well.
But what most users do is update the graphics drivers only. You need to updated the HDMI adapter driver as well, just in case it’s outdated. For that, you need to follow these steps:
- Press Windows key + R and type devmgmt.msc and hit the Enter
- Now click on Ports (COM & LPT) and expand it
- Right click on the device driver and click on update
Also, you could try some of the fixes from our previous article on the issue where Windows 10 doesn’t recognize the external monitor. If your Windows 10 device has started blinking after you connect a projector, you can try some of the fixes listed here.
