Laptop to projector won't display full screen

Hi, I have an old Toshiba projector with resolution of 800x600 which worked prefectly with my 3yr old HP laptop. I've just bought a new HP 17" Probook 4710s with widescreen and now I can view it perfectly on the laptop screen but the image on the projector cuts off some of the image. If I scroll to the right or left I can view the missing bits but I cannot view the entire screen at once. I'm using 1600x900 on the laptop and if I change it to less it is even worse. Please help as I need to use this projector to demo my software and train.

Hey I've now sorted it. I tried different resolutions on the laptop and thought that it wasn't working because when I get a good picture on the projector I then don't get a good picture on the laptop. Yesterday I had a cable-guy here fixing our hub and he said that my problem is that I was doing all the right things but my expectation was wrong. He said to change the resolution to 1024x768 on my laptop to match that on the projector but don't expect my laptop to look perfect. Hey presto! It works and I can still read the laptop but it is a little fuzzy.
