Having problems with your ASUS Eee PC 1000HE Netbook ?

I am trying to hook my Eee 1000HE netbook up to my hdtv. I have 15 pin RGB cable but it doesn't work. Followed TV (Visio) directions, but it doesn't work.

Answers :

More information would be helpful - what operating system are you \015\012running - XP or Linux? are you getting no signal at all? or just a \015\012picture and no sound? or vice versa?. What settings did you try?
\015\012In the meantime, I have just been doing the same thing with a different TV and I did get it to work, although my display is too fuzzy - I suspect the TV I'm using doesn't have a high enough resolution - sadness. So here's the 411:
\015\012(A) Hardware - check your hookups are correct first - the tv should be \015\012off when you do \015\012this - netbook can be on I think, although you might want to have it \015\012shut in standby - anyway (1) you need to plug the VGA cable into the \015\012port on the 1000HE and the other end gets plugged into the VGA IN port \015\012on the TV; (2) if you are using external speakers directly on the \015\012netbook, you do not need to connect an audio cable - otherwise you need \015\012an audio cable (standard PC to TV, about $12-$15 at Best Buy or Radio \015\012Shack) -\015\012 plug one end into the headphone jack on the 1000HE and the other end \015\012into the AUDIO IN jack on the TV located right next to the VGA IN port. \015\012 Now you can put the TV on.
\015\012(B) TV settings - Now you need to switch the TV input to VGA mode, which\015\012 is the correct setting for for a VGA hookup (just like you pick cable \015\012for cable, TV for TV, etc.) You may have a separate button on your \015\012remote control for this called "input" or "mode" or similar, or it may \015\012be accessed from the menu button or something else entirely - check your\015\012 TV''s manual.
\015\012(C) PC settings - Once you have the TV set to receive VGA, you then need\015\012 to configure the netbook. I have no idea how to do this for Linux, but\015\012 in XP open "Control Panel", open "Display", click on the "Settings" \015\012tab, click on the "Advanced" button, click on the "Montior" tab and \015\012verify that the box next to "hide modes that this monitor cannot \015\012display" is NOT checked - if it is then uncheck it. You have to do this\015\012 or you will not be able to set the TV to a resolution beyond what the \015\012netbook can display (fyi, the netbook lcd is limited to 1026x768 and \015\012should NOT be set higher). Now click on the tab "Intel(R) Graphics \015\012Media Accelerator Driver for Mobile". I recommend you put a checkmark \015\012in the box for "Show Tray Icon" so that you can quickly access this menu\015\012 in the future when switching display settings between your netbook and \015\012TV. Now click on the "Graphics Properties" button. This will open the \015\012menu that allows you to configure an external display - you will notice \015\012that "Notebook" is selected at this point. To output to your TV only, \015\012select "Monitor" and then "Display Settings" to choose the resolution \015\012you want to output to - your TV's manual should have information on \015\012highest resolution settings. With some TVs you can just start at the \015\012highest resolution and work down until you get one that works - if you \015\012will just get an "unsupported" message and XP will automatically revert \015\012back to the prior setting after 15 to 30 seconds - just be careful as I \015\012have heard that some TVs can be damaged if you try and set them on too \015\012high a resolution.
\015\012If you are still having trouble with video, check that Windows XP is \015\012using the correct driver for your TV - first check if your TV has a \015\012Windows XP driver at the TV manufacturer's website. If not, just use \015\012the XP plug n' play driver.
Oh, you might want to enable Cleartype in Windows XP - Microsoft has an online utility here and a link to a utility you can download:

An even better cleartype utility is here (has good rep. and is posted on CNET and Softpedia as being clean):

Well, that's all the info I have - hope it works for you.
