Hi my name is dustin. I have a computer that was built in 2002 running windows 7. I also have this wall projector that only have rca hook ups. instead of buying a switch. I got this cable that goes from vga straight to yellow rca and s-vid. When i plug in the cord i do not get a display. is there some sort of program i need on my pc to beable to use my projector. Via vga to rca cord.

Edit: Moved topic from Win 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Try changing your resolution to 800x600 on your computer before switching. It could be your monitor resolution is too high for the projector.
