    I've learned from the new mirror that I got today that it can project my monitor image onto my wall almost as clear as the LCD itself. The only problem is that the image is upside down and it's not bright enough. Anyone know how to fix this and create a simple set up using two mirrors a light and my LCD?

    Its not so much where you are as when you are.
    Increasing the light in the laptop would burn it up. Other light would be bad or at least counter productive.

    Two Mirrors might work. Best best is to flip the screen. I think there is a program that does a mirror screen as a software hack.

    Try to get the surface you are projecting onto as reflective as possible.

    There isn't anything that is going to work well though with what you are doing.

    Trust me on this one, I've been through this. You're better off finding a cheap projector. PM me for some really good model numbers that are pretty cheap, I have them in a text file somewhere.

    There's a forum at that's all about what I think you're trying to do. Don't expect any amazing results, though, regardless of what they claim.
