You will need to find the function button that transfers the signal to your monitor i.e press function + f10

Or go into your control panel/harware and sound/display and change display option to duplicate to monitor or projector or whatever option you have?

can i also ask while we on this subject...... what cable if possible is it for VGA on the side of the netbook to the HDMI on the plasma/LCD TV to enable me to do what Kebabjones is asking?

yeah -- -- look for the 'FN' button on your laptop

then look for the same coloured text as the 'FN' along the F-Keys - mine is F5 - has a small image of two pc-screens, pressing the FN and the F5 together then sends signals to the external VGA.

Watch out though - when i do this, the laptop suspends itself from inactivity - annoying!

Thanks for the info.... So the laptops with no HDMI are stuffed! i am guessing then it would be VGA to Composite phono connectons ( Yellow,White & Black)
