    Hello,
    Please help
    I have a mid 2007 I got from surplus, upped the ram to 4, found out programs need at least 10.7 and it had 10.6.8 and the only free upgrade was Yosemite. I downloaded it. Now I am trying to get the mac to recognize the smartboard. Notebook is installed. Also I have an infocus projector that I need to get set up. Plugged in the USB for smart board and the monitor cable for the projector. Go to display, check mirror, but nothing displays on the smartboard from the projector.

    Are you running Yosemite on this now? How is the projector connected (VGA, DVI, DVI --> VGA Adapter, etc.)?

    Does the projector bulb work otherwise? Have you tested it with an input other than your Mac.

    Using the mini-dvi to vga display. Bulb does work with other computers.

    Have Yosemite on there now. That was the only free upgrade available fro 10.6.8. No other issues with the computer.

    Try connecting it to a different monitor or projector for troubleshooting.

    Tech came by today - after googling seems Yosemite is having problems with projectors. We have some laptops with Yosemite on there from teh get go - no problem - just seems to be ones with upgrades. Don't know - going back to Lion I think.

    Definitely a possibility that I wouldn't have expected since I am running 10.9 here.
