    Connect Windows 10's video/audio to external monitor/speaker


    Hi all,

    I've got a windows 10 x64 laptop machine and am going to connect the display to an external monitor through a cable and the audio to external speakers via Bluetooth. And the purpose is, when a video is playing on the machine, to have its video and audio on those external devices instead of the monitor/speaker of the laptop itself.

    What are the correct instructions to achieve this goal please?

    :)

  2. Vga monitor connected to my laptop via a hmdi port

    Hello Andrew,

    The VGA connector is a video connection for sending analog video signals to the monitor or TV. Unless you are planning to connect to a special monitor, such as a plasma or LCD TV that has a DVI connector, connect your Primary monitor using
    the VGA connector.

    The HDMI connector is a digital connection type for transferring high-definition digital video signals AND audio signals. When used with a compatible monitor or television, HDMI has the capability of carrying true high-definition video and
    audio as well HDCP protected content. If your computer has HDMI audio, it should be set as the default audio device in Windows audio properties (available from Windows Control Panel). The monitor or TV with HDMI must have speakers to hear audio.

    We suggest you try the steps below and check if this works.

    • Open the "display settings" in your computer and activate output to the screen. You can either mirror content of your computer or extend the display just like a dual monitor screen.
    • Check the "External Inputs" of your monitor menu. You will need to change the default "Video 1" to a different selection which may be "HDMI 1" or "Video 2" depending on how you have made the connection.

    Important: Make sure you connect the cable to the laptop before turning on as sometimes it may fail to recognize external display.

    Let us know with the outcome.

  4. Connect Windows 10's video/audio to external monitor/speaker

    connecting external speakers to pc

    Am using: hp slimline desktop 260 a010z windows 10 v. 1809 IE11 & edge browsers. So long ago I don't remember why I connected an hdmi cable from monitor to tower using the green speaker outlets. Now I wish to try to connect external speakers but am
    unsure of purpose of hdmi cable that is already plugged in.

    I looked at control panel then sound and found 2 devices listed: 1. "digital display audio device amd hi-definition(not plugged in)" and 2. Realtek hi-definition audio (default device)"

    I'm afraid to disturb current set up before getting advice from any of you brilliant, knowledgeable people who are kind enough to help. I recall connecting pc speakers once long ago with no problem but now I spot the hdmi cable and am leery.
