How to add second monitor to asus cg5270? - ASUS Eee PC 1000H Laptop


Answers :

The Asus Essentio CG5270 is a desktop computer, so I see it was placed in the wrong category. No prob!

Certain selected models of the Essentio CG5270 come with a graphics card. If you have this graphics card, you can use two monitors at the same time. (Dual monitors)

If you do Not have one of the selected models with a graphics card, you have to purchase, and install a graphics card.
You can purchase a decent graphics card that has dual DVI ports, and is relatively inexpensive.

Looking at the back of your computer,

1) View the purple PS/2 port. The port where you can plug in either a Keyboard, or a Mouse.

Come straight down to the blue VGA connector. This port is to connect a VGA monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or an PCD monitor that has a VGA cable.
(Flat screen monitor)

Look to the immediate right of the blue VGA connector. This white port is a DVI connector.
You can connect an LCD monitor to it that has a DVI cable.

This two ports are Onboard graphics ports. (On the motherBoard)

You Cannot connect a monitor at the same time to these ports.
BIOS will only recognize one port.

You have to have a graphics card also.

You can connect two monitors to a graphics card,
IF, it has two graphics ports. For this model it looks like the best they are offering, for connecting two monitors is a DVI port, and a VGA port.

You Cannot hook a monitor up to the Onboard graphics port, and to the graphics card port.

BIOS will only recognize Onboard, or a graphics card. It won't do both.

IF, you have a graphics card.

There are four horizontal slots, on the bottom of the computer tower. IF, you have a graphics card it is usually in the second slot down.

It - Should have a white DVI port on the left, and a blue VGA port on the right.


Again as stated above, you can purchase a graphics card that has two, (Dual) DVI ports on it. Then connect two monitors to the graphics card.

(Digital Visual Interface:
A DVI-I female port is White in color, and has 3 rows of 8 holes. To the right of the holes is a metal bar, shaped like a Plus Sign.
{ + }
There is a hole in each of the four corners, of the Plus Sign.
Four holes in total.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

VGA:
The VGA female port is usually Blue in color.
There are 3 rows of 5 holes. They are staggered.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

If you wish you can plug 1 monitor into the VGA port on a graphics card, and the 2nd monitor into the DVI port on the graphics card.

They also make a Male DVI to Female VGA adapter plug. Has Male DVI pins, and female VGA socket holes.

This is for a monitor that has a VGA cable, and you are adapting it to plug into a DVI port on the graphics card.
Useful if you have two monitors with a VGA cable.

(They also make a Female DVI to Male VGA adapter. Make sure what you want, and what you are purchasing)

NOW, (Not shouting),

The following applied to Windows XP. I see the Essentio CG5270 comes with Windows Vista.
See if the following will crossover to Vista.

1) You have two monitors plugged into your graphics card. Monitors are On.

2) Computer is turned on next. Windows loads up.

3) Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.

4) In the small menu that comes up, go to the bottom, and left-click on Properties.

5) In the small Display Properties window that comes up, left-click on the Settings tab.

6) You will see a large blue rectangle with the number 1 in it. This is your Primary monitor icon.
This is your main monitor.

You will see a smaller rectangle in the background, and it will be 'ghosted' out. This is your Secondary monitor icon. This is the second monitor you hooked up.

Left-click on the Secondary monitor icon.

7) The Secondary monitor icon will 'light up'.

NOW,
IF, your Primary monitor is sitting in front of you, and your Secondary monitor is sitting on the Right, it's okay.

IF, your Secondary monitor is on the Left, you need to make a change.
Left-click on the Secondary monitor icon, hold the mouse button down, and drag it over to the Left side of the Primary monitor icon.

Why?
Because you need to have those icons sitting the same way, as your two monitors are sitting on your computer desk.
More will be revealed as you read on.

8) Go to the bottom of this window. You will see -
Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor,
and a square box to the left of it.

Left-click in the middle of that square box.
Go to the bottom right, and left-click on Apply.
Go to the left of Apply, and left-click on OK.

Bling! Your second monitor has your desktop on it!

When you go online with your computer using dual monitors. Your Primary monitor will have the what you see online. Your Secondary monitor won't.

Go all the way to the Left side of your monitor screen, with your mouse cursor.
Left-click, and hold the mouse button down. Drag your mouse to the Left.

You should see what you're seeing on the Primary monitor, being dragged over to your Secondary monitor.

No?

Then go to the Right side of your Primary monitor screen, and drag it the other way.

Questions?
Just turn off your eepc. now connect the second monitor's VGA port to the VGA port of your eepc. This post is also the port used to connect a projector. It is a blue female port and your monitor has a blue male VGA port. Now turn on your eepc and both screens will show up.
