Need help adding an external monitor to a laptop

Pavillion Notebook 15-au023cl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a Pavillion 23xi backlit monitor which I have had for about 3 years.  I just purchased a new HP Pavillion 15t notebook.  I want to hook the monitor up to the notebook and I don't understand the steps that I need to do.

Thank you

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

I read your post about connecting your external monitor to your laptop and wanted to help.

You connect the monitor to the laptop using a video cable.  The connectors depend on the video output jack that is on your laptop.

 

The Maintenance manual for your laptop shows it having an HDMI port -- you would use that.  But that is generally for connecting a TV, not a monitor, unless the monitor also has an HDMI port.

 

If the monitor does not have an HDMI port, you would also need an adapter, either HDMI-to-DVI or HMDI-to-VGA, depending on the port on the monitor.

 

Once it is connected, you go to the Notification Panel on Win10 and click the Project button.  That will allow you to select what is displayed on your laptop screen and on the external monitor.

 

Good Luck
