    I purchased the apple ipad vga adaptor a few weeks ago to use with Keynote to display slide shows on a larger monitor and it worked well until recently when I upgraded to the new 5.1.1 OS. The adaptor no longer will display Keynote, or anything else for that matter, on any monitor. Any suggestions???

    Have you tried these common fixes, especially the Reset at the end? This often fixes problem right after an OS upgrade.

    ----------------

    When you have problems with an app it's a good idea to clear it from RAM.

    Close/Clear the app: With the problem app closed, double tap on the Home button to get the multitask bar. Tap and hold on any icon in the bar until they jiggle, then tap the minus sign on the problem app. This will remove it from RAM and insure a clean start the next time you launch the app.

    If that does not work try a restart,

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears. Apple recommends you restart the iPad at least once a month.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.
