Right click on your desktop and hit personalize, then scroll down and go to display settings. If There is two boxes. one With 1 in it and two with 2 in it then you may just have to enable it. My laptop has a shortcut for it you have to hit fn then the f6 key at the same time to enable a second monitor :)

How can I connect my TV to a Dell laptop via HDMI?


if oyur LG tv has multiple HDMI ports, then you might need to choose the correct HDMI port from the 'INPUT' menu. Does the HDMI port on TV (sidepanel / back) has a sticker which denotes the number? if yes, then on tv remote, choose INPUT /SOURCE menu, it will show TV, Component, RGB, HDMI1 , HDMI2, HDM3, etc (depending your tv model, these options might vary) and choose the port number which you plugged the HDMI into. if you do not have a number on the port, then you might need to select each HDMI from "INPUT' menu and wait for a couple of seconds.

Hdmi laptop to tv


I'm assuming you wish to connect the laptop to the TV.

first off connect the HDMI to the laptop and the TV and then change the source to the correct one for what HDMI port you chose so if the wire is in HDMI2 then switch to HDMI2.

next how to make it use the TV so go to the desktop right click and go screen resolution if it has picked it up it will be in the drop down menu then its just a case of resizing until it looks right

After confirming those connection on your T.V. and Laptop, you can just the HDMI cable to connect you Laptop to T.V. Also you need to choose HDMI on your T.V. settings and for your Laptop you can just switch the display by pressing FN+F4 or F5.

Hope It helps.

I am connecting Yamaha DVD player to the Vizio M420 NV via HDMI. i have a picture but no sound. how do I gain audio when using HDMI?


HDMI has both Audio and Video (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and should carry both. However, I had this problem with a client just the other day and it turned out that the firmware on his TV needed to be up[graded. Different model TV, but I believe you may need to download the latest software/firmware update via your PC and put it on a flash drive and then flash the firmware on your TV to get it to work. Sorry I don't have the specifics; I was stumped and the Time-Warner guy ended up doing it. I hope this at least sends you in the right direction.

My motherboard and monitor have hdmi ports and a hdmi cable connecting them. When I sellect hdmi mode on the monitor, the screen goes black and then a message comes back saying no hdmi signal. Is there...


Hello, I'm not sure about the system or monitor that you're using, but usually for Windows systems, you have to change the display within the system before the screen will actually show on the monitor through something other than the standard display port. If you reply with your OS, then I might be of more help, but assuming you have Windows 7, you must plug the hdmi cord in, right-click on the desktop, and select Screen Resolution. Then select the option (likely "HDMI") under Display that you are currently not using. At this point, your current screen will most likely go black. Switch you monitor to hdmi mode, and then you should be able to use your monitor via HDMI. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, or simply comment.

When I connect my Advent laptop running windows 7 to my panasonic viera tv via hdmi via a vga to hdmi converter I just get a blank screen, are there laptop or tv settings that I need to change? Chris.


Yes there are a couple of settings which you must change in order for your computer to register your external monitor. on the desktop right click with your mouse and go to personalize, once that opens on the lower left corner click on display, now on the top left corner about the (5) fifth option it should say change display settings, click there. If you do not see two monitors displayed, click on detect, and once you see two monitors click on apply. Now if you want to extend your desktop to the second monitor simply go to the multiple monitor drop down menu and click on extend these displays, and viola there you have it. Be aware these settings are only meant for Windows 7.

No sound or picture from dvd


And you have selected the HDMI2 input in the TV menu? If yes, try the dvd on another TV, if you have one. Also try reversing the HDMI cable.

NO sound on HDMI3 port and when playing Blu-Ray DVD's the screen is pink


Go to the samsung website, and find out how to upgrade the firmware for your TV. You will probably need a portable usb memory stick to do so (if your TV is equipped with one). HDMI is an evolving technology, and firmware upgrades can resolve many of these quirky issues.

Here's a possibility from http://www.samsung.com/us/support/faqs/supportFaqList.do?group=&type=&subtype=&model_nm=LN-S4696D&dType=D&mType=UM&vType=R&prd_ia_cd=02010100&acc_ia_fl=&disp_nm=LN-S4696D
Which Samsung LCD TVs Have The HDMI 1.3 Interface? spacer.gif Of the LN-T series Samsung LCD TVs, those models whose last two digits are 61, 65, 66, 69, 71, or 81 (for example, LN-T4071F or LN-T466F) have the HDMI 1.3 interface.
Samsung LCD TVs with HDMI 1.3 interfaces also have HDMI-CEC (HDMI - Consumer Electronics Control). For information about CEC, click HERE.
For information about individual Samsung LCD TVs with HDMI 1.3 interfaces and HDMI-CEC, click HERE. When the Samsung LCD TV web page appears, select the TV model you want information about by clicking the drop down list under Product Finder on the left side of the page.
Though other series of Samsung LCD TVs (LN-R, LN-S, etc.) have HDMI connections, none have models with the HDMI 1.3 interface.
