Hi there. I have a new laptop and want to use my HP Pavilion AIO as a display monitor. 

 

I've tried connecting an HDMI cable between the two devices but my laptop isn't picking up the All-in-One as a display/monitor.

 

Any help would be really appreciated.

 

Thanks so much.

Use Wi-Fi and Miracast both system support it

The below link gives instructions on adding a laptop to desktop  or vice-versa using Wi-Fi.

if you run into problems post back.  

 

[edit]  I looked at the spec for your system

https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c06642857

under "ports" only USB is listed.  Normally, both HDMI-in and HDMI-out would be listed so I  guessed you do not have an input to allow the AIO to be a monitor. 

Is there more than one HDMI ort on your AIO?

Hi, thanks so much for responding to my question.

 

I have one HDMI port and I do have a USB-C dock also.

 

In your suggestion, you recommend using the Microsoft Wireless Display Adaptor. Do you think this will then work given I do have a HDMI port and USB to make the connection on the bank of the AIO?

 

Thanks so much,

Melinda

You do not need an adapter.   Both your systems support Wi-Fi and either one can be used as a second monitor to the other.

 

You only need that adapter if using a TV set or a dumb monitor.

 

the following might be helpful.  Read my post near the bottom.
