Alienware M17X - problems hooking to projector

This question is not answered

Ok, this one is killing me.  I'm trying to get my new Alienware M17X laptop to recognize an external projector to use for presentation.  I know the projector is working fine, because I put another laptop on it with no problems.  I've tried both HDMI as well as VGA cable, and I get nada...  the laptop does not seem to see the projector.  Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated.  OS I'm using is Vista Ultimate - 64.

  • Figured this out..  had to make sure integrated graphics was off and SLI was on.  Then it projected just fine.  Yes, reading the manual does help :-)
