@James4321 Greetings from the HP Community!

Here's all you need to know about resolving your concern:

 

Step 1: Connect the second display

Computers and TVs have a wide variety of video connection types. The video connection on your computer must match the connection on your TV or monitor.

NOTE: 

If your PC only has DVI and your TV does not have a DVI port, you can use a special adapter or converter cable.

  1. Select a connection type based on your second monitor.

    • Monitor: VGA  or DVI  cable

    • TV: Video (composite)  or S-video  cable

    • High Definition TV: DVI  or HDMI  cable

  2. Connect the TV or monitor to the computer using the cable you chose.

  3. Connect a power cable to the TV or monitor, and then turn it on.

  4. TV connections only: Change the TV video input source to match the video source connection from the computer (Line-1, Video-1, HDMI, etc.). Refer to documents that came with the TV for instructions.

    Depending on the TV, the image quality might not be as good as that of a monitor.

  5. Turn on the computer.
