My laptop does not seem to detect monitor. However, it does show monitor details in advanced display settings. Monitor unable to display the laptop. Tried all the online solutions.

Not a lot of information to go on there.

Can you provide the exact make and model of the laptop and monitor?

It looks like the laptop has a single HDMI Output and the Monitor does have a single HDMI (v1.4) input, so thats a good start.

Here is a link to the user guide for reference.

Have you (or are you able to) confirm the HDMI cable works on another system or connection? You can use anything for this, just want to connect something else to the monitor using that cable. If it works that ensures there are no issues with the Monitor input or the cable itself.

Make sure your laptop display resolution is set to no higher than 1920x1080. This is the highest supported resolution of the monitor.

Assuming the above is all OK, connect the laptop to the monitor then with the laptop sitting at your Windows desktop press (and hold) the Function (Fn) key then tap F8. The Fn key should be toward the bottom left corner of the keyboard as you look at it and the F8 key should have a little picture on it that looks like the image below:

You may be a pop up on screen with some options like Clone display, External Display Only or Extend display.
- Clone will show your desktop on the Monitor and your laptop Screen.
- Extend Display will use the monitor as an extension of the desktop.
- External Only will display on the Monitor only.

If you dont get an option and nothing happens after about 5 seconds Press Fn+F8 again, try this two or three times. This is because it may just cycle through the above display options rather than displaying anything.

Let us know how you get on.
