Fist I would plug the laptop HDMI into any other HDMI interface, like a TV or another monitor just to ensure it worked.
If it works then plug it back into the Projector and follow troubleshooting tips.
if you want more trouble shooting tips you need to be a little less vague about "unable to connect"
Let us know what you have done to try to remedy it so far and exactly what it is NOT doing.

You have to select output to your HDMI device. Some laptops don't do it automatically.

Also what is the max resolution of that projector? If it's a "cheap" one, you may "only" get 720P resolution.

Once connected via HDMI, try pressing the Fn button + one of the F buttons (usually on the laptop it will show 2 screens, for switching between your laptop screen and the external one.
