How to Hook an ASUS Netbook to a TV

Updated April 17, 2017

Netbooks are small yet powerful computers that do not sacrifice connection options. The only real gripe about netbooks is the small monitor size, but this can easily be remedied by connecting your Asus netbook to your TV. The connection processes does not require any technical knowledge or special tools and only takes a couple minutes to complete.,

Plug one end of the HDMI or VGA cable into the HDMI or VGA port of the netbook; plug the other end of the cable into the corresponding HDMI or VGA connection on the TV. HDMI is the superior method of connection, but VGA also works well.

Press the "HDMI" button on the TV remote, if you're using an HDMI connection, or the "PC" button if you're using a VGA connection. The TV switches to the selected input where the netbook is displayed.

Restart the netbook if it does not display on the TV. Restarting the netbook lets the netbook boot up with the TV connected so it can recognise it as a connected monitor.
