The specification would imply it has a standard VGA port and will therefore just use a standard VGA cable. There are plenty of these available on eBay such as this one.

oh brilliant, i did think it was that one, but it was them little screw things that threw me, as i couldnt see where they would go on my mini netbook lol ?? i remember the monitor one having the screwie things lol..but i thought perhaps they had to screw in to a hole on the netbook, and as there is no sign of a hole, thats what made me ask .. thank you

The screws are just there so you can secure the cable in. Sometimes they don't include the screw holes on small devices for space reasons. Doesn't interfere with how well the cable works, just means if you pull on it then it will come out!
