laptop to TV

I have a packard bell laptop that I have been trying (unsuccessfully) to connect to our big screen TV via a HDMI cable

I plugged the cable into the lappy then into hdmi 2 on the TV
Then selected hdmi 2 on the TV remote, got a blank screen then went onto the lappy , went into control panel, got this after hitting "change display settings"






So tried the only available option on "the left "connect to a projector"
Got 4 boxes.........computer only, projector only, duplicate and extend

Tried both duplicate and extend but neither showed up (even after altering my resolution)
After trying for an hour have given up


Anybody any ideas?

Re: laptop to TV

I go to the 'number keypads' on my lappy and around F10 [will vary depending on make of laptop] i can change from laptop screen only...laptop & tv ...tv only Hold down the FN button while you press the F10,or whatever button has the 2 screen logo on it.

Re: laptop to TV

Ted, it is not seeing your HDMI as it should show 2 screens not one.




Is your HDMI cable working okay? Possibly try on a friends setup or borrow a friends cable.

Re: laptop to TV

I did it years ago back in the uk, but now it seemed like nothing worked today, TV didn't detect anything

Re: laptop to TV

I could do it with a android tablet to HDMi on TV socket .But it won't let me do a sky transfer as sky don't support HDMI.
Was ok on i player.
