Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today.

Sorry to hear that you’re having trouble with this but I’ll do my best to help you out.

What is the model of your tv? What laptop?

The key here is to connect hdmi on both ends, set the tv to the corresponding input mode (hdmi1, hdmi2, etc),

then set the laptop to the external monitor/projection mode (there is usually a function key on the top row of the keyboard for this), and if needed adjust the laptop resolution to 1024x768 or 1920x1080.

Best regards,
