  1. connecting pc harddrive to laptop using an hdmi cable


    Hi,


    I have my work pc harddrive home to try to connect to my laptop, I've been given an hdmi cable and an ethernet cable which are both connected how I was instructed but my laptop isn't detecting the harddrive. I can't find it anywhere.


    Any advice where to look for it or do I need to do something to my laptop for it to show? According to work I should just be able to plug it in and start straightaway.


    Thank you!

    :)

    PC and TV not connecting via HDMI cable

    If the PC has detected your HDMI-TV connection then it will be shown as an additional display in Settings, System, Display.

    If there is no additional display shown then your PC has not detected your HDMI-TV connection
    - Unless there is something wrong with the connection itself, I'd first try going to your PC maker then downloading and [re-]installing the latest display driver.
    - I suggest you also check your PC manual & any user forum your PC maker provides to see if there is any useful guidance there.
    - You might also get somebody else to connect their PC to your TV using the same TV settings & HDMI cable to prove that nothing there is at fault.

    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.

    VHS CONNECTED TO MY LAPTOP WITH HDMI CABLE

    * Merged *

    Thank you for cheeking on my enquire, here the additional information required:

    • SAMSUNG RF511 Laptop
    • Runs WINDOWS 10
    • LG Digital & Analog DVD recorder player combi
    • Connected with HDMI cable
    • I believe the laptop's HDMI port plays both ways (input/output)
    • The LG Device's HDMI Port is output only
    • Attempting to play and convert VHS videos, to be digitally archived in my laptop
    • What kind of program would allow me to perform this task
    Cheers
