What Cord is Needed to Connect a Laptop to a Monitor?
First, please ensure both your monitor and laptop have an HDMI port as well as an HDMI cable to connect the two. These ports are marked accordingly on the back of your TV or monitor if you are unsure of what to look for. If your laptop or monitor does not have an HDMI port, an adapter can be used for connection.
Next, connect the HDMI cord an available port on your monitor then connect the other end to your laptop. Power both the laptop and monitor on, the laptop should connect to the display automatically. You may need to manually switch the input channel of your monitor to HDMI if this is not the case.
