@mhorton86

Welcome to the HP Forums 🙂 

I would like to take a moment and thank you for using this forum, it is a great place to find answers. 

 

As I understand you want information on connecting a monitor to your laptop,

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details: 

Is this a single monitor to your laptop or are you looking to connect two monitor?

 

While you respond to that, here's what you need to know:

 

There are two types of video transfer methods: Digital and Analog. If you try to connect a digital connector to an analog port or vice versa, you will not be able to view video. Also, if you attempt to play protected high-definition digital content, such as Blu-ray movies, over an analog connection, you will probably get an error message or the movie will play at lower quality resolutions.

  • HDMI (digital) connector
  • DisplayPort (digital) connector
  • DVI (digital/analog) connector
  • VGA and SVGA (analog) connector
  • S-video and Composite (analog) connector

CLICK HERE FOR MORE STEPS AND INSTRUCTIONS.

(By the end of this article all the issues should be resolved)

 

Keep me posted,
