My MBP won't detect a projector even when I reboot the system.

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

I can connect to a monitor, so I know the adapter and cable are working, and my old HP will connect to the projector so I know it's not the projector, but my MBP will not even detect that a projector is connected..  I have tried multiple projectors as well.  I am using a VGA cable with the apple adapter.  I have read old threads, but there doesn't seem to be anything recent, and it seems like people were able to find the projector after restarting the system.  I have tried all of the various displays sizes and colors; I have tried connecting the cables in various orders as one person said this worked for them, I have tried turning off the computer first, then connecting everything, I have tried connecting everything then restarting, but my computer just won't detect the projector(s).  Any thoughts?

You can ignore those instructions. Adobe has what I believe is an easier way to install Flash by using the manual installers. See the Adobe troubleshooting guide - http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/191/tn_19166.html#main_ManualInstaller
