Just went through that with my Inspiron 6000. But, the Techie guided me through
1. keying and holding the Fn key "first", then
2. Keying the F8 key.
3. I was able to hold the Fn down and by keyin g the F8 each time, i would get display, display and monitor/projector, or once more and I'd get just the projector.
I hope this helps. For your info, this is my first Dell, and if i hear one more time that they expect me to pay to get information, I'll hunt them down and... Well, you get the idea.
I'm not happy with their support service. The next laptop i buy will be froma Gateway Store or a "I made it" shop. The intial price don't mean anything if you can't get her operating correctly.

Same thing happens to me.
Even worse, my computer projected the other day then stopped communicating completely with EVERY projector. There's definitely some glitch in the drivers, but Dell is not supportive.
