How do I get an LCD projector to show an image from my laptop. For example, how do I get it to show Powerpoint presentations?

You plug the LCD projector into the laptop by what ever video connectors are available. Most laptops have an VGA output and most LCD projectors have a VGA input. Just plug them in. You may have to set something in the BIOS to enable both the laptops internal display and the VGA output at the same time

The LCD projector is little more than a type of VDU.

What kind of laptop do you have (ie: make/model) and how old is it?

In my experience, most newer laptops have the ability to swap between single or dual display by using a "function" key (usually has "FN" on it) and the F keys on the top row.

So you would connect the laptop to the projector as StuartS said and then you would look for the F key that shows a dispaly....it's usually something like F8 or around there. You would hold the FN key down and hit the appopriate F key until you had both displays working (ie: the laptop display and the projector display) at the same time.
