@w2042T

Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  

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

    • Monitor: USB-C , Mini DisplayPort (Thunderbolt) , DisplayPort , DVI , VGA 

    • TV: USB-C , Mini DisplayPort (Thunderbolt) , DisplayPort 

    • High Definition TV: USB 3.0 , Mini HDMI , DisplayPort (Thunderbolt) , HDMI , DVI , VGA 

  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.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
