Hi, and welcome to TSG.

It might help us to help you if you told us the the brands and model numbers of both the laptop an TV. Also, what kinds of problems do you have that might make you think you are not doing the connections correctly?

It should be a matter of ...

1) Connecting one end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI output of the laptop.

2) Connecting the other end of the HDMI cable to an HDMI input on the the TV.

3) Using the TV's controls and on-screen menus select the HDMI input you just used for the the cable.

4) If you don't get the computer showing anything on the screen, check if you need to activate the HDMI output on the laptop, perhaps by a function button with a symbol that looks like a monitor screen.

5) Depending on the laptop computer, you may have an option to adjust its video output settings to duplicate what is showing on the laptop's screen or to extend the Windows desktop to the second screen.

6) You may need to adjust the laptop's sound controller settings if computer audio doesn't come out of the TV.
