    Hi, I'm trying to get my Dell C640 w/ ATI Mobile 7500 to work correctly with a projector via standard VGA cable. The problem is that no matter what resolution or refresh rate I select in the Monitor settings under Displays in the ATI properties (640x480 through 1400x1050), when projected it appears very zoomed in. Moving the cursor around scrolls around on the projector and it won't play full screen videos correctly because large parts are not visible. I tried changing the projector to 4:3 and 16:9, but it didn't make a difference.

    I've tried the projector with a friends non-Dell laptop and it worked perfectly and did not zoom in, but his only allows a max of 800x600.

    Any ideas? I am using the latest drivers from Dell. thanks
