Hi all,

I have a HP/Compaq 8710w laptop (with Nvidia quadro graphics card) running F8.
When I connect a monitor to the video exit of the laptop I can configure it
with the "twin" option to have it display on both the external screen and on
the laptops own screen.
However, today I tried to use a beamner with the laptop and it fails to
recognise that it is connected. What am I missing? What should I do to make
it work?
