Every day, Asurion experts help our millions of customers get the most out of their technology, including their Smart TVs. In this guide, we share everything you need to know to help you connect your laptop to your TV, whether you want to swap out your small screen for a big screen for watching movies, use your TV as a monitor while working from home, or just want to a bigger screen to see your friends’ faces through video chat.

How to connect your laptop to your TV via HDMI

One of the most reliable (and easiest) ways to connect your TV and laptop is with an HDMI cable. An HDMI cable carries video and audio signals between two devices.

HDMI cables are the same on both ends, so it doesn’t matter which one goes to the TV or laptop.

To connect your laptop to your TV with an HDMI cable:

  1. Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI output on your laptop.
  2. Connect the other end of the cable to one of the HDMI inputs on your TV.
  3. Using the remote, select the input that corresponds to where you plugged in the cable (HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3, etc.).

How to Connect Your Laptop to Your Smart TV Wirelessly

Depending on the type of computer you have, you may be able to ditch the cables and go wireless.

To connect your laptop to your smart TV:

  1. Make sure both your laptop and TV are connected to Wi-Fi.

  4. When your TV appears in the list, click on it to connect your laptop.

If you don’t see your TV listed, click Detect under the Multiple Displays heading. If it still doesn’t appear, your TV or laptop may not support Miracast®, the technology that allows devices to connect wirelessly. However, you may be able to connect your laptop to a streaming device, such as a Roku® streaming stick, which you could then use to project the screen to your TV.
