You did correctly connect the projector before starting the
machine. On most laptops you'll find a "CRT/LCD" key (usually
among the PF keys on top) you need to press with the "Fn" key.
This will cycle through three modes: LCD only -> LCD and CRT ->
CRT only. Press this once or twice, and you should get output
on the projector.
Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0
