Just installed latest Android-X86 on my EEE 701 all fine but can not get it

to output to external display on bootup

I get the first part of the boot show on both the EEE and external but as

soon as the Android logo appears the external monitor shows no picture.

My idea longterm is to have this device under my 42" LCD TV in the lounge.

Any help greatly recvd.

Many thanks

I have an eeePC 1015PX, but I think it should work for you too:

Thanks for this (pasting in here for archival purposes). It should work for most other devices.

Can I use an external VGA monitor or TV?

You need to disable the internal display by adding this to the kernel cmdline (in GRUB):

video=LVDS-1:d video=1024x768

d – means “disable”.

Hi there,

I have been trying to do the same thing on an Sharp Aquos LCD TV with VGA

input and so far no joy. I booted my eeePC with ubuntu and it display ok on

the TV, but once I boot to ICS, the TV just doesn't detect it. I heard TV

only detect refresh rate of 60HZ, wonder is there a way to set this on ICS?

Any help will be appr.

Try "video=LVDS-1:d video=VGA-1:1024x768@60" boot options.

No joy! the setting does change the screen to 1024x768 during the boot text

console, but once the graphic starts, it change to some high weird

resolution which my TV or monitor can't sync to (yes I chk with using it on

a LCD monitor). I heard it mention there is a debug.drm.mode need to be

set, but have no idea where to set it (the mail mention,

but where is it?)

Any help really appr. ;-(

Is there any option to extend the display to two monitors?

I have a Samsung NC10 and I'm using android-x86-4.0-RC2-asus_laptop image.

It's installed on my hard disk and it's working really nice except for

little things that don't have to do with this topic.

I'm trying to hook up the netbook to an external display (a 1080p monitor

with VGA, HDMI and DVI outputs) through the VGA port, I tried the

video=LVDS-1:d video=VGA-1:1920x1080@60 thing and it makes the external

monitor work and show the bootscreen (Detecting Android... Warning: Not an

Android product... etc. etc.) but then the screen GETS STUCK at a black

screen with a hypen ( - ) on top of it.

Afterwards the internal display turns on and starts working again with the

Android animation whilst the external monitor keeps showing the black

screen with a hypen on it.

If I unplug the vga connector the internal display GETS STUCK AS WELL at

the same black screen and no matter what I do I can't get it working back

unless I reboot my netbook although I can hear the sound of notifications

running on the background or the click sound (this proves Android is still


I've also tried plugging my netbook to a 1680x1050 monitor and a 1366x768

SONY TV with same result.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

Creating a "Android with external monitor" entry in grub?

This works ok for me on one of my monitor (not the other one, the more

recent one ... no big deal).

Now I have a noob question.

I have not been able to save the changes wihtin either one of my two

entries in Grub.

That means each time I want to display on my external monitor, I have to

edit the command before booting adding

"video=LVDS-1:d video=VGA-1:1024x768" to the command line

How do I create another entry in Grub corresponding to "Android with

external monitor" or modify the preset entries I already got?

As I said, I'm a linux noob, so I have no linux on my eeePC, just the

android system with GNU Grub v0.97, a computer under W7 and a few rooted

Android phones.

Could anyone provide me a step by step guide?

Thanks in advance,

where did you add these?

"video=LVDS-1:d video=VGA-1:1024x768" to the command line

when you boot in debug mode?

You add them in you kernel command line (edit it in your boot loader config)

Glad you got it working, which is a lot better than what I can. Anyway, try

google Grub configuration. The config. file usually resides in /boot/grub

or grub2. The file is called grub.cfg. In there you should be able to find

the boot test that was display when grub starts up. Just copy the whole

section (change display text to suit) and add the boot perimeters and save

the file. When you reboot, you should see a new section with the new boot


Hope this helps.

What about HDMI output? Does that work for you? I see this issue with

virtual terminal 7 (android graphics). Virtual terminal 1 is OK on HDMI
