    I'm having a difficult time understanding your post... but it may be that you do not have the correct drivers installed for Windows or the display settings are not setup correctly. Since it works OK on the Mac side and does not work with Windows, that's a good possibility. A projector is like an external display. You have to choose the correct resolution and color depth. Also, make sure Windows recognizes the pocket projector before you begin the setup.

    Regards.

    In Windows, (you didn't say which version of Windows) open the hardware tree. Control Panel -> System -> Hardware. Does the projector appear under displays?

    Regards.
