How to Connect your Computer via HDMI with a TV o Monitor The Best Way Possible

The Best way to Connect your Computer via
HDMI With a TV or Monitor is to program it Not to mirror the Computer’s Screen but, to
Extend it Allowing the user to work with both devices Independently and at the same time Using therefore, both devices in their full
capabilities My name is Nicola Scanni With a degree in Multimedia and a passion
for Technology I have a tendency to pass along my knowledge In a very simple way In this step-by-step tutorial for Windows
users I will teach you first How to connect these devices and then How to program your computer to separate them In addition, I will explain how to switch
the monitor (Left or Right) Depending on your setup needs While easing your dragging experience Do not worry if it sounds complicated I can assure you …it is not I will explain it in a very simple way Therefore, even if you feel you are a beginner Or if you have very little knowledge It will be easy just like a walk in a Park The advanced users instead Can easily jump to step 3 by reading the description
below Ready? Let’s Go Step 1) Find the HDMI Female Entrance in both Your Computer and Your TV or Monitor And calculate the distance related to your
setup planning Go ahead and buy the HDMI Cable With the proper length you have just calculated Keep in mind that there are several types
of cables The one I am showing you has a Gold Plated
Plug This will guarantee you the best quality connection And it will never oxidize or rust This type of cable can also be adjusted for
an angular setting Other types of cables may bend too much And with time rip themselves apart However, their cost is almost the double respect
to the regular one Therefore, it will be up to you to choose The type that better fits your purpose Step 2) First, Insert the HDMI cable into your TV
or Monitor Than plug in the other end of the cable into
your Computer A double tone sound should play to make you
notice That your Computer has recognized the device Now, you can right click with your mouse On a free space of your Computer Screen And choose Screen resolution If you do not have a mouse with a right button Go to Start – (The Windows LOGO) – Control
Panel Appearance and Personalization – Display – Change
display settings The Windows program automatically Chooses the best display settings, including
screen resolution Refresh rate, and color, based on your monitor These settings differ depending on Whether you have an LCD or a CRT monitor Step 3) Go to Multiple Displays and Change the Default
Setting From Duplicate these Displays to Extend these
Displays This setting, will allow you To Play and Listen to your favorite Video By dragging it from the Computer to the TV
or Monitor And have at the same time, the Computer Screen
FREE To make your Google Search Or to use any other software for your convenience Depending on your Computer’s Video Card You may be able to change the Volume With the Remote Control of your TV or Monitor Step 4) Depending of your setup You may need to switch side for an easier
dragging solution In my case My TV is on my LEFT and my Computer is on
my RIGHT Therefore, it seems appropriate and spontaneous
for me To Drag items from Right to Left and not from
Left to Right As in the Default setting The solution is very simple Click (ONCE) and Drag the TV Screen’s Icon Over the Computer’s Icon and Click Apply The last thing I would like to mention Is the possibility to have your TV or Monitor
as the Main Display First Click (ONCE) on the Monitor’s Icon And Then Check Mark where it says Make this
my main display Click Apply and your TV or Monitor Will became your main display This is very useful if you have a Wireless
Mouse And you Need or just want to be able to move
around in your room In addition If you also need to be able to type in a web
address or anything else I suggest you to take a look of my Tutorial

  10. hey Nicola,
    Im trying to link up this hdmi to my computer but my screen on my computer keeps turning sideways… So the picture is sideways.. can you help?


    First try this: If you hold down the CTRL and the ALT key and hit the up arrow that will straighten your screen out. You can also try the left and right arrows if your screen is sideways and you can also hit the down arrow if you want to turn it upside down for some reason and that's it.

    DIDN'T WORK? = TRY This two methods can help resetting your TV/monitor:

    Method 1) :

    1- Turn on your TV/Monitor, and PC/Laptop and make the HDMI Connection.
    2- Select the right device source (exp. HDMI 1).
    3- Disconnect (possibly both at the same time) by unplugging your electricity cable from the socket to all devices (from ON to OFF) and wait 10 minutes.
    4- Reconnect la electricity and the HDMI Cable One at the time. The reset will caused a Hardware re-adaptation that should now recognize the HDMI connection.

    Method 2) :

    1- Make sure that all of your Devices are Turned off.
    2- Connect the HDMI Cable ONLY between TV and PC e memorize the source (exp. HDMI 1).
    3- TURN ON PC/Laptop.
    4- TURN ON TV.
    5- Try to Find and Select the Source with the Remote Controlof Your TV (exp. HDMI 1).
    6- Press and HOLD the FN (function button) usually found on the lower left of your PC's keyboard and press F5, F7 o F9.

  19. I have 2 hdmi ports on the back of my computer tower. I have one hdmi connected from the computer to my TV (also used as a monitor, and on the other hdmi port I have that one connected to my 2nd monitor (Curved Samsung monitor) but when I have both hdmi's connected I can only send signal to one tv and not both, why? I also have an HDMI switch but im not sure how to utilize it so they both work. My end goal is to extend both monitors while using the hdmi switch to go from my computer to my ps4 simultaneously. Can this be achieved?

    EDIT: Before my bought my new monitor I was using a smaller monitor that had an hdmi switch and the vga cable so instead of plugging in both hdmi's I used 1 hdmi and the vga cable to use both monitors but now this new monitor only has 1 hdmi and no vga so thats why im having an issue if that helps.

  20. QUESTION: I bought a new gaming PC and a HDMI monitor. The PC had HDMI ports in the back of it, should i just plug the HDMI cord in the back of the PC, or the graphics card?

  21. Roger Burchill1 hour ago (edited)having trouble with PC going blank when I plug my HDMI cord into TV. I want to work with both PC and TV at same time. I finally got the sound to work but I had to work with a wireless mouse to do that. Maybe I have to get a drive updated but also tried that and still nothing. Please help. PS, it's not a laptop. Also having trouble getting full screen on 42" TV. I think i have tried everthing but the right one I guess. I go into systems and it doesn't show any monitor at all. It just shows display, night light off scale and layout, change the size, resolution, orientation, Multiple displays, which doesn't work. I hit detect and didn't detect another display pops up.
