How to Connect a Laptop to a TV via HDMI

Using an HDMI connection is among the safest (and simplest) ways to link your laptop and TV. Video and audio signals are sent between two devices using an HDMI connection.

To connect, follow the steps below;

  • Connect the HDMI cable’s other end to your laptop’s HDMI output.
  • The other end of the cable should be plugged into one of your TV’s HDMI ports.
  • Choose the input corresponding to the location of the cable using the remote control (HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3, etc.).

Laptop-to-TV HDMI Troubleshooting

Do the video or audio from your laptop not play via your TV properly? Here are a few expedient fixes that you should consider.

Restart your laptop: You may sometimes force your laptop’s display to transition to the TV screen by restarting it while it is connected to an HDMI wire.

Check the HDMI port on your laptop: The curved edges of various computers, including some Surface Pro models, might cause the HDMI adaptors to get disconnected. Verify that the port’s edges are completely sealed and that the cable is not being yanked out.

Check the HDMI port on TV: It’s common for HDMI ports on TVs to be quite tight, making it simple to mistakenly believe the cable is plugged in when it’s actually barely connected. Make sure the cable is plugged in all the way by checking it firmly and thoroughly.

Check the HDMI cable for damage: Your HDMI cable can have suffered damage while being transported or stored.

Install the latest operating system and firmware updates: Downloading the most recent updates may frequently resolve a number of technological problems, whether you have a Windows or a Mac laptop.

Double-check the HDMI source: The wrong HDMI port may be being attempted to read by your TV. Use the remote to go through all of your TV’s media options.

Switch HDMI ports: Use a port that has been shown to operate, such as the one attached to your Xbox or Blu-ray player, if you suspect that an HDMI port may be broken.
