Hooking my laptop up to bluetooth speaker and external monitor

Sep 15, 2018
[Moderator note: moved post from Technologies to Home Entertainment.]

I have a Lenovo laptop which I often take out to do presentations. I want to hook up my bluetooth speaker and a 40 inch smart TV as an external monitor in able to have a big screen so that people in a large area can see the screen image and hear the sound.

I have successfully connected my large bluetooth "party" speaker. However as soon as I plug the hdmi cable in, connecting my big screen, the bluetooth connection goes away and the sound comes out of the TV's built in speakers.

Surely there must be a simple solution to this problem.
