Windows 7: weird laptop/projector issue

11 Apr 2017   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (64-bit) Service Pack 1 (Build 7601)
weird laptop/projector issue

Had a weird issue this evening with a Windows 7 laptop connected to a data projector.
The data projector was only displaying the laptop's screensaver. The laptop screen was at Desktop &
worked normally - opening folders etc
Tried restarting laptop - re-attaching VGA cable etc. - no difference.
The data projector had no other input but the laptop and displayed only images included in the laptop's screensaver setup. Any suggestions? This is hurting my head.
