Getting my laptop to show up on my tv

  sdonnell 02:23 26 May 2014

Hi Everyone, Have a ?: I have a Samsung laptop NP350 model. I've been trying to hook my laptop up to my htmi device on my tv. I have a cable to do that, and on the device tab on my computer it shows which to chose from and I have it set for both screens; however nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

My TV is about 6 years old. The computer is formatted in 2012 and I bought it a year ago. Thanks.

Have you set the tv to the correct input

Agree with mole1944. Once you have the laptop connected to the TV with the hdmi cable, you need to use your TV remote to bring up the input options. Then select the hdmi input and press OK. This should then connect the two devices. If your TV has more than one hdmi socket, make sure you have selected the correct one.

You may have to go into display settings on the laptop to selet HDMI

or use the Fn+ F(something- F% on my tosh)) key to tell the laptop to out put to external screen.
