Not something that requires hardware support :)

Yeah, I've seen the bent pin problem too. Those things get plugged in
and out so much that it's bound to happen... But I've had problems
with the bizarre windows control panel, trying to get the thing into a
resolution that the external projector likes, getting it working in linux
with a data projector was fun too. You might as well have been using the
"private" mode for all the use it was :)
I'm not sure which model it was though.
