How to get an aluminum MacBook (2.4 GHz) to recognize a VGA Projector?

I had to set up a presentation in which an out-of-town person will do a training using DVDs. The boss took the one laptop which is set up for this, out of town, so after trying and failing to find anything else that would work, I went home and got my MacBook and bought a MiniDisplay to VGA adapter.
After about 90 minutes of flounder, I had to give up and will show the DVD's on a television set tomorrow.
I used a lot of resolution settings, and every other tweak (not many) I could think of but the computer never recognized that external display. Put the MacBook to sleep, woke it up, made sure the software was up-to-date, downloaded some sort of fix from Apple that was probably already on Snow Leopard, etc. No dice.
Other AskMe's about this but I did not find anything about this specifically. Is there something obvious that will help me snatch victory from the jaws of FAIL, in the morning?
