I am attemptiong to set up a
BENQ ms510 on my laptop. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on an Asus G74S with 16GB DDR3, 2 x 500GB hard drive plus 2 externals.
When I attempt to download the user manual from Benq it crashes IE. When I attempt to use the supplied disc, it also crashes ie.
I do not know if I am running into some sort of conflict with other software, or if it is a problem with the BENQ formatting. Projector is new, I bought a few months ago in Canada but have not used yet. Now in Guatemala, and would like to use it to share movies with los ninos at the escuela I volunteer at.
Not very techno gifted, but wonder if I should just forge ahead. Projector came with a 15 pin comp/monitor cable, a usb type B, cable, and power cord. Projector has slots for HDMI cable, RS-222 cable (9 pin), and a 15 pin monitor out slot, but none of these with the package.
Would love to be able to share movies with these poor kids, who never have access to computers or movies, just lousy TV, and not much of that.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome to TSF here is some of the pages from the manual which may help you a little here is the pdf https://www.projectorcentral.com/pdf/...anual_5737.pdf
Connecting a computer or monitor
Connecting a computer
The projector can connect to both IBM® compatibles and Macintosh® computers. A Mac
adapter is needed if you are connecting legacy version Macintosh computers.
To connect the projector to a notebook or desktop computer:
1. Take the supplied VGA cable and connect one end to the D-Sub output socket of the
computer.
2. Connect the other end of the VGA cable to the COMPUTER 1 or COMPUTER 2
signal input jack on the projector.
3. If you wish to make use of the projector (mixed mono) speaker(s) in your
presentations, take a suitable audio cable and connect one end of the cable to the audio
output jack of the computer, and the other end to the AUDIO jack of the projector.
When you connect audio output signal from a computer, please balance out the
volume control bar to obtain an optimal sound effects.
4. If you wish, you can use another suitable audio cable and connect one end of the cable
to the AUDIO OUT jack of the projector, and the other end to your external speakers
(not supplied).
Once connected, the audio can be controlled by the projector On-Screen Display
(OSD) menus. See "Audio Settings" on page 52 for details.
The built-in speaker will be muted when the AUDIO OUT jack is connected.
Many notebooks do not turn on their external video ports when connected to a projector.
Usually a key combo like FN + F3 or CRT/LCD key turns the external display on/off. Locate a
function key labeled CRT/LCD or a function key with a monitor symbol on the notebook. Press
FN and the labeled function key simultaneously. Refer to your notebook's documentation to
find your notebook's key combination.
Connecting a monitor
If you want to view your presentation close-up on a monitor as well as on the screen, you
can connect the MONITOR OUT signal output jack on the projector to an external monitor
following the instructions below:
To connect the projector to a monitor:
1. Connect the projector to a computer as described in "Connecting a computer" on page
19.
2. Take a suitable VGA cable (only one supplied) and connect one end of the cable to the
D-Sub input jack of the video monitor.
Or if your monitor is equipped with a DVI input jack, take a VGA to DVI-A cable and
connect the DVI end of the cable to the DVI input jack of the video monitor.
3. Connect the other end of the cable to the MONITOR OUT jack on the projector.
• The output signal for MONITOR OUT jack only works when the input signal comes from
COMPUTER 1 or COMPUTER 2 jack. When the projector is powered on, the output signal
from MONITOR OUT jack varies depending on the input signal from COMPUTER 1 or
COMPUTER 2 jack.
• If you wish to use this connection method when the projector is in standby mode, make
sure the Standby Monitor Out function is turned on in the SYSTEM SETUP: Advanced
menu. See "Standby Monitor Out" on page 53 for details.
20 Connection
Connecting Video source devices
You need only connect the projector to a Video source device using just one of the above
connecting methods, however each provides a different level of video quality. The method
you choose will most likely depend upon the availability of matching terminals on both the
projector and the Video source device as described below:
Connecting audio
The projector has one built-in mono speaker which is designed to provide basic audio
functionality accompanying data presentations for business purposes only. It is not designed
for, nor intended for stereo audio reproduction use as might be expected in home theater or
home cinema applications. Any stereo audio input (if provided), is mixed into a common
mono audio output through the projector speaker.
When you connect audio output signal from a video source device, please set the audio
output in dual track to obtain an optimal sound effects.
If you have a separate sound system, you will most likely want to connect the audio output
of your Video source device to that sound system, instead of to the mono audio projector.
The audio connections illustrated on page 18 are provided for informational purposes only.
You need not connect audio to the projector if there is an alternate sound system available,
or if audio is not required.

Connection 21
Connecting an HDMI source device
The projector provides a HDMI input jack that allows you to connect it to an HDMI source
device like a DVD player, a DTV tuner or a display.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) supports uncompressed video data
transmission between compatible devices like DTV tuners, DVD players and displays over a
single cable. It provides pure digital viewing and listening experience.
Examine your Video source device to determine if it has a set of unused HDMI output jacks
available:
• If so, you can continue with this procedure.
• If not, you will need to reassess which method you can use to connect to the device.
To connect the projector to an HDMI source device:
1. Take an HDMI cable and connect one end to the HDMI output jack of the HDMI
source device. Connect the other end of the cable to the HDMI signal input jack on the
projector. Once connected, the audio can be controlled by the projector On-Screen
Display (OSD) menus. See "Audio Settings" on page 52 for details..
2. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI jack on the projector.
• If the selected video image is not displayed after the projector is turned on and the correct
video source has been selected, check that the Video source device is turned on and
operating correctly. Also check that the signal cables have been connected correctly.
• In the unlikely event that you connect the projector to a DVD player via the projector's
HDMI input and the projected picture displays wrong colors, please change the color
space to YUV. See "Changing Color Space" on page 31 for details.
• The projector is only capable of playing mixed mono audio, even if a stereo audio input is
connected. See "Connecting audio" on page 20 for details.
22 Connection
Connecting a Component Video source device
Examine your Video source device to determine if it has a set of unused Component Video
output jacks available:
• If so, you can continue with this procedure.
• If not, you will need to reassess which method you can use to connect to the device.
To connect the projector to a Component Video source device:
1. Take a Component Video to VGA (D-Sub) adaptor cable and connect the end with 3
RCA type connectors to the Component Video output jacks of the Video source
device. Match the color of the plugs to the color of the jacks; green to green, blue to
blue, and red to red.
2. Connect the other end of the Component Video to VGA (D-Sub) adaptor cable (with
a D-Sub type connector) to the COMPUTER 1 or COMPUTER 2 jack on the
projector.
3. If you wish to make use of the projector (mixed mono) speaker(s) in your
presentations, take a suitable audio cable and connect one end of the cable to the audio
output jack of the device, and the other end to the AUDIO jack of the projector.
4. If you wish, you can use another suitable audio cable and connect one end of the cable
to the AUDIO OUT jack of the projector, and the other end to your external speakers
(not supplied).
Once connected, the audio can be controlled by the projector On-Screen Display
(OSD) menus. See "Audio Settings" on page 52 for details.
The built-in speaker will be muted when the AUDIO OUT jack is connected.
• The projector is only capable of playing mixed mono audio, even if a stereo audio input is
connected. See "Connecting audio" on page 20 for details.
• If the selected video image is not displayed after the projector is turned on and the correct
video source has been selected, check that the Video source device is turned on and
operating correctly. Also check that the signal cables have been connected correctly.
Connection 23
Connecting an S-Video/composite source device
Examine your Video source device to determine if it has an unused S-Video/composite
output jack available:
• If it has both jacks, use the S-Video output jack for connection as the S-Video terminal
provides better picture quality than the Video terminal.
• If it has either of the output jack, you can also continue with this procedure.
• If not, you will need to reassess which method you can use to connect to the device.
To connect the projector to an S-Video/Video source device:
1. Take an S-Video/Video cable and connect one end to the S-Video/Video output jack of
the Video source device.
2. Connect the other end of the S-Video/Video cable to the S-VIDEO/VIDEO jack on the
projector.
3. If you wish to make use of the projector (mixed mono) speaker(s) in your
presentations, take a suitable audio cable and connect one end of the cable to the audio
output jack of the device, and the other end to the AUDIO jack of the projector.
4. If you wish, you can use another suitable audio cable and connect one end of the cable
to the AUDIO OUT jack of the projector, and the other end to your external speakers
(not supplied).
Once connected, the audio can be controlled by the projector On-Screen Display
(OSD) menus. See "Audio Settings" on page 52 for details.
The built-in speaker will be muted when the AUDIO OUT jack is connected.
• The projector is only capable of playing mixed mono audio, even if a stereo audio input is
connected. See "Connecting audio" on page 20 for details.
• If the selected video image is not displayed after the projector is turned on and the correct
video source has been selected, check that the Video source device is turned on and
operating correctly. Also check that the signal cables have been connected correctly
