How to Connect an Eee PC to a TV

Updated April 17, 2017

The tiny, ultra-portable size of an Eee Netbook computer allows you to carry it with you with ease, but with every strength there is often a weakness. One weakness of the Eee Netbook computer is that the small screen makes it difficult to view movies. You can remedy this problem by connecting your Eee computer to a TV.

Plug one end of the VGA cable into the Eee computer and plug the other end into the VGA jack on the TV. There are four ways to connect a computer to a TV: S cable, HDMI, DGI and VGA. However, Eee computers only have a VGA port, so your TV must also have a VGA port. A VGA cable is the standard cable used for connecting a computer monitor to a computer.

Right-click the desktop and select "Graphic Properties" from the menu that appears. Select the monitor output option so the computer's signal is transferred out to the TV. Click "Apply" and the computer's image will be displayed on the TV. A a message will appear asking if you want to keep the changes or discard them. Click "OK."

Connect an end of the 3.5mm audio cable to the computer and the other end of the cable to the TV's VGA audio input. This will make sure the sound from the computer plays on the TV's speakers.


Use the 3.5mm audio cable as instructed and not a 3.55mm audio-to-RCA cable, as that would require plugging the red and white plugs into the RCA ports, therefore requiring the TV to be set on a separate mode than the VGA. It's necessary that both the audio and video be set on VGA.
