Netbook computers are smaller and generally less expensive than full-sized laptop computers. Most netbooks do not come with an optical disc drive, which conserves space. Netbooks also generally have a longer battery life because the less elaborate internal components require less power. Many netbooks have a VGA or HDMI connector for external video connections. You can connect a projector to your netbook computer if it is equipped with an external video port.
Things You'll Need
- VGA or HDMI cable
Connect one end of the VGA or HDMI cable to the projector and power it on.
Connect the other end of the VGA or HDMI cable to the matching port on the netbook.
Hold the Windows logo key and press "P" twice to mirror the netbook's display to the projector.
Tips & Warnings
- Hold the Windows logo key and press "P" three times to extend the display to the projector so that the netbook's display and projector act as two independent displays. Hold the Windows logo key and press "P" four times to turn off the netbook's display and only use the projector.
