Users of modern TVs often face the problem of connecting a laptop or computer to them using an HDMI connection. Some devices simply do not have such inputs, so you have to look for sophisticated methods for using TV as a monitor. Even advanced Smart TV does not always immediately work correctly through an HDMI connection. In this article, we’ll show you how to connect your laptop to your TV using an HDMI cable.
We connect the laptop to the TV via the HDMI cable. We’ll look at the connection process using the Asus K56CM laptop as an example. As a TV, we chose the LG 32LN575U, but you can use any other model, as they are almost identical in capabilities. Then follow a few simple steps: Connect the cable to the HDMI connector on your TV.
Do not be alarmed that TV did not give any signal, because it will appear only after connecting a laptop or computer. Then perform a similar operation with a computer or a laptop. It is important to remember that there is only one output on the PC in the default video cards. If so, then you will need to use the TV as a monitor. If on the device there are several different outputs, then to the second HDMI you can just buy an adapter.
Then you will actually have two functional monitors. Next, take the remote from the TV and change the source in the settings. In most of the devices it is called HDMI or «digital». To access the corresponding menu on the LG TV, press the «INPUT» button. After that you will have to see the image from a computer or laptop on your TV.
