My laptop will no longer work with my projector. It worked up until 2 weeks ago. When I first turn it on, it works. But if I click on a new window, the projector image turns blue. I can use the Fn key and F8 to get the image back on the Smartboard, but I lose the image on my laptop screen (no matter how many clicks I try). The only way I can get it back is to reboot. But it is short lived.

This all started after the projector had been connected to a Windows 7 computer. Could that have anything to do with it? Can a video card get zapped?

Sounds like your advanced display settings are set wrong. You want to have the second display (projector) to be a clone of the primary.
