    Hey all,

    Every sunday I project a power point during a churches service on a powerbook running os 10.4 and a sanyo projector. My problem is when I show photos or video there almost to dark to see. I tried using a pc laptop and it was nice and bright. Also the projector is set as bright as possible. So my question is what do I do to make the laptop project lighter.

    thanks for your help:confused:

    Were you using the same cable when you hooked in the PC? What about changing color profiles on the PowerBook? You can even try to make a new color profile and calibrating it to make it very bright.

    System Prefs>Displays>Color tab

    Also, this Apple discussion thread may be of some help.

    Yes same cables and config accept the powerbook uses a VGA adapter. Maybe its just a bad adapter. You may of just answered my question by asking me one
