How to Get Computer Screen on TV via HDMI

HP Pavilion dv9830us


I have connected my HDMI cable from the laptop to the TV but when I select HDMI on the TV I keep getting no signal error and nothing displays on the TV. I have tried both HDMI ports on the TV to no avail. When I hook up the cable the computer beeps but nothing happens on the TV. Can anybody help me with this?

Re: How to Get Computer Screen on TV via HDMI



Please don't ask me why but try this order:


1. Turn OFF both TV and laptop

2. Connect the HDMI cable

3. Turn ON the TV, from the menu allow it accept PC/Laptop using HDMI port (you should have a list HDMI1, HDMI2 ...)

4. Turn ON the laptop

5. Using Display properties, you should see 2 screens now

6. Select screen #2, it is similar with this:




You don't have to do this next time.
