Struggling to connect to Smart tv either by cast or hdmi

HP Recommended
HP-15-de0500na 15.6"
Chrome OS

I have a HP chromebook and can find no way to connect it to my smart tv. I naively thought it would mirrorcast like my android devices but obviously it doesn't. I looked at various forums for guidance and bought an hdmi adaptor to connect via usb c port. This doesnt work either. Any help would be appreciated. 

 

My chromebook is HP-15-de0500na and whilst its not top of the range it did cost £350 (which i am starting to regret spending)

 

FYI - on my display menu there is no "mirror option".

 

Please help,

Thanks

Adrian

I reviewed your post and I understand that you are trying to connect the laptop to your TV.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

You will not be able to connect the laptop to the TV. The USB C port on your computer doesn’t support the display.

 

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!

Thanks for your response.

 

You have asked me to let you know how I got on.  But you told me that there is nothing I can do to connect my chromebook to my smart TV. What am I supposed to tell you that I did? 

 

Confused and very cheesed off. Why can display not come out of the USB c ports?!!!!

The USB C port on your computer doesn't support display which is why you will not be able to connect a display.

 

I hope that answers your question.

 

Thanks!
