|Samsung XE303C12-H01DE Chromebook: with 3G modem and|
a German keyboard which I'm still not used to.
However, I need to give presentations on occasions. No problem, I just get one of these:
|HDMI to VGA adapter from DX.com (SKU 156981)|
|HDMI to VGA adapter with power bypass fitted|
|How to solder the power onto the adapter: +5 on |
pin 18, ground to wherever convenient.
That's it! It works nicely, although I don't think the adapter queries the monitor for modes, a decent selection is given to the ChromeOS as soon as the adapter is plugged in. I've only tried it with one projector so far, but there is no reason it should not work with just about any that accept VGA signals.
Hopefully this information is useful to other (ARM) Chromebook users, but note this is a no-name adapter - yours may look entirely different. Just remember these adapters are active devices which need power (even if very little), and since the Chromebook isn't delivering it on its HDMI port, you need to get it there somehow.
