My laptop's HDMI port is stuck!

I just recently got a Compaq Presario CQ50 laptop, and it turns outthat the HDMI port on the left side has a little plastic insert in it,blocking the little socket from its fate of sending and receivinginformation. I've tried going at it with a screwdriver, a fork, aknife, etc. to try and pry it out, but to no avail. Please help meh!

If you bought the same one as myself CQ50-110us then the plastic plug means you have no HDMI. look closer on the box or on the website for more info.

The "Begin Here" poster/quick setup guide states HDMI port on select models only. Same for having built in webcam

Sorry if you were expecting it to have it

    Just so you know It is not a True port. i pushed on the plastic insert hard enough and it just broke and pushed inside my new laptop. It's an empty space which should have housed the hdmi port if this model came with one. It Does not have a working port. Like i said earlier only certain models had this port. Now i have a loose piece of plastic in my laptop to rattle about.

    Your welcome

Can i hookup theis computer to my tv using a hdmi cable?


Yes, your notebook comes with an HDMI port. You will need an HDMI cable to connect to the TV (usually LCD TVs come with an HDMI port). After the connection has been made, change the source in the TV by clicking the "Source" button on the remote. It usually changes in the following sequence - AV1, AV2, HDMI.

My Compaq Presario CQ50-103NR Notebook PC keeps shutting down. Sometimes right away sometimes after a few minutes. The left side of laptop seems to get hot while the right side stays cool. Can You please...


Hi:
You most likely have a heat problem, as you have realized. To fix the problem, your heatsink/fan assembly needs cleaned, and then reinstalled with new heat sink compound. Some disassembly is required, so this isn't an easy job. If you go to a reputable shop, and tell them what you want them to do, rather than just tell them your laptop is shutting down, you should get it done for a fair price!

I bought a cq50 compaq laptop on e-bay it has a


Hmm i'm having a similar problem with my sony vaio.
There is several things that could be the cause. Is the laptop getting very warm? are the fans spinning?
I would try a bit of compressed air in the air vents to see if that improves anything. Also if you have 2 ram sticks, try using just one, and try both ports. some times the connections are a little funny. Other than that I would take it all apart add one compoent at a time, its possible that something has failed
