    Dual display problem?

    My laptop a Toshiba A 10 is running Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit. My problem is I can't get it to display on the laptop and on a projector simultaneously during a presentation. I made connections as specified but it goes directly to the projector not on my laptop. I pressed function and F 5 with no results. I tried Windows logo + P and it goes to display resolution screen. I tried reducing resolution from 1280 x 768 to 800 x 600 still nothing. I can't get the three displays to select the method of display. What am I missing and what do I need to do?

    MJ,

    On my Dell this is accomplished by pressing and holding the key marked FN (or Func) then pressing the Function key {F} with a picture of 2 screens on it {F1 in my case}. Each time I press F1 it cycles to the next choice from: Computer only, Duplicate, Extend, Projector Only. Interestingly, this will only work from the laptop's keyboard I can't find a key combination on my Logitech wireless keyboard to bring up the screen! HTH

    Everything made sense up until you mentioned "three displays". What exactly is your setup?
