I have a Lenovo laptop connected to my SMARTBoard. My problem is that whatever I am projecting on the board is very dark. I can't seem to get it brighter and the kids have a hard time seeing it - even with the lights out. I have increased the brightness on the laptop and the board - but it doesn't help. I am wondering if there is something out of sync between the boad and laptop. I don't know how to change that. Any suggestions? I love using it but it is frustrating.

The remote has a display button and that brought up the adjustments.

dee - not sure if that is what I did - that is my problem! I know I somehow had two things that I adjusted - one on the computer and one on the board. That being said - I don't know if it had to do with the board or the projector. I will look to see if I can find the 'room' type settings somewhere. Of course nobody has the documentation for the projectors.....it might have been in that.

mine was an Epson and had settings like "living room, theater, ...etc" I can't remember the rest and don't even remember what it was called. But, it changed the coloring, brightness and even screen ratio a little with each different setting...

You actually went to menu for the smartboard and increased brightness? There's also a setting for "bright room" or "dark room" as well as the contrast.


I had to play a bit with ours until it was better. I find nothing is as good as what I see on the laptop, including the clarity of color.
