I bought this laptop G6U18UA#ABA..My intention was to hook it up to my television. I had an existing HDMI cable attached to the tv that I had another computer hooked up with. I also bought another HDMI cable because I wanted a longer cable. Neither one of them fit in the HDMI slot in the laptop. Are there different end types because I am stumped.

Hi...

 

There are different types of HDMI cable connectors.

I know Type A is what is seen on TVs. I am not sure what type is on your PC, but check. I have usually seen Type D because of limited space.

 

Cheers,

Thank you for your reply...

 

The two cables I have are type A..Fits in the tv just fine, but not in the laptop. It doesn't look as small as a type D. But it can be a type C...Do they sell adapters since I will need 2 different ends?
