My laptop has a broken screen... It's bent a little too and I have no idea how I would replace that on my own so eventually i'd like to fix it but in the mean time I have a Vga cord and a Hdmi cord. The vga cord usually works and I can use the function key with the f4 key and connect it just fine... But the problem is I mainly use that vga cord for my desktop. I would like to use my hdmi cord to connect via tv however i've tried using several different tv's and none of them work. I do not think the hdmi cord is faulty either because my brothers toshiba laptop connected perfectly fine via the hdmi to the tv. I think it may be a setting issue and I do not know how to fix it... If someone can give me steps on how to change the settings I can use the vga cord to see what i'm doing... It would be more useful to use the hdmi as Not every tv accepts vga.. Thank for reading I hope I can recieve some help with this.
