    Hi,

    I have recently converted from a Windows to a Mac, and I was wondering how can I hook up my MBP 15' 2010 to a projector.

    The adaptor for my projector does not fit my Mac. Unlike my windows laptop previously, it was able to fit right out of the box and i just needed to press FN + F5 to see the display.

    Is there an adaptor that I need to buy?

    What inputs does your projector have? Macs come with Mini DisplayPort which nearly always needs some kind of an adapter

    I am not sure, my projector is the blue color adaptor. Is it a standardized adaptor for projectors?

    Is there a convertor or adaptor of sorts i can purchase?

    Can you get the model number of the projector? Or a picture of its inputs?
