  1. Connect Laptop to TV using VGA- HDMI cable


    Hi,


    I am using Dell Vostro 3466 and it doesnt have HDMI port so I am using VGA to HDMI port. I am trying to connect it with my smart tv but it says no signal.


    My laptop display has been destroyed and I can barely see whats on it. Please suggest shortcuts or work arounds to connect my laptop to my tv as alternate screen.


    Any possible idea.


    Thanks,

    :)

    Laptop not recognizing TV through HDMI connection


    Hello everyone!

    First I do apologize if this is not the correct section for this thread.

    I've had issues connecting my laptop to TV for the past day. Connection is done through an HDMI cable. Connection was good up until it randomly turned off itself while playing a game. There have been no hardware or software changes whatsoever that would affect it.

    TV is SAMSUNG, Model: UE32J4000AW. Laptop info is available in My PC Specs. (laptop is brand new, week or two old)

    Here's what I've tried so far:


    • 3 different HDMI cables
    • switching between ports on TV
    • tried all projection options on Laptop
    • Disable / Enable both Intel and Nvidia drivers
    • Rollback Intel GPU driver and installed it back to latest version
    • Re-installed Nvidia driver
    • Restarted PC and TV
    • Scan for hardware changes through Device Manager
    • Checked Intel and Nvidia control panels - there were no available options
    • Apparently both HDMI ports on the TV work as I tried them with a tv box.

    I think that's all I've tried so far, will add anything else if missed. Open to suggestions.

  3. unable to connect laptop to tv using HDMI cable

    Hi Rob,

    Thank you for the reply and update.

    Follow these steps to check if that helps:


    • Turn off your computer and position it within easy reach of your TV. Disconnect the monitor, but leave the mouse and keyboard connected.

    • Connect the appropriate video cable from your computer's output to your TV.

    • Turn on your TV and set it to the input that matches the output on your computer. You might need to refer to the user's guide included with your TV for instructions on how to do this.

    • Turn on your computer.

    • You should see Windows displayed on your TV. If the screen looks stretched, or part of the screen seems cut off, you probably need to adjust the screen resolution in Windows.

    • If you can't see Windows on your TV, you might need to reconnect the computer to your monitor and adjust the screen resolution before you connect to your TV.

    Note: Cables for VGA, DVI, and component video don't support audio signals. However, HDMI cables do support audio signals, but not all HDMI-enabled video cards support audio. If your HDTV has an audio input, you might be able to connect a separate
    audio cable from your computer sound card directly to the TV. Otherwise, you'll need to connect the audio signal to a different device, such as external computer speakers or your home stereo system.

    Keep us informed to help you further.
