Plug an HDMI Cord into your computer.
This option requires a little more technical know-how but should still be easy enough to accomplish. For this option you would first need to make sure your computer has an HDMI slot (The slow will have HDMI written above or below it). You most likely already have an HDMI cord connected to your tv, allowing you to watch a dvd player or another external drive. Here’s how to use it in collaboration with your laptop.
- Keep one end of your HDMI cord attached to your tv.
- Plug the other end of the HDMI cord into your laptop.
- Click the input button on your tv’s remote and switch the HDMI to ‘HDMI 1’, ‘HDMI 2’, or ‘HDMI 3’, depending on which port your HDMI cord is plugged into on your tv.
- If the image from your computer doesn’t automatically pop up onto your tv, go to your computer and switch its display settings to ‘mirror’.
