This video shows how to connect Laptop to HDMI TV which supports HDMI 1080p and VGA. See me connect the Toshiba Satellite C55D-A5120 Laptop up to my 37" Vizio Wide Screen LCD TV. My Laptop is running Windows 8 so you can see how to connect Laptop to TV using HDMI Windows 8 & Windows 8.1. Even though I'm using a laptop with Windows 8.1 you can still see how to connect a laptop up to a Wide Screen television using a Windows 7 laptop or Windows 10 laptop to TV. Any computer to TV HDMI can be connected using a good quality HDMI cable.
The Toshiba Satellite C55D-A5120 is a 15.6" Windows 8.1 laptop that can handle 1080p HDMI video with ease. It connects to my Vizio 37" flat screen TV with ease, but keep in mind that it's easy to see how to connect laptop to smart TV or to a dumb TV in my video. And performance was surprisingly excellent for a $300 laptop that I bought at Walmart too.
When using a HDMI cable it becomes very easy to have both video and audio being pushed through one single HDMI cable connection. This becomes great for any business setup for presentations, meetings and/or watching movies for recreation and leisure time. The single HDMI cable connection is far better than using a VGA and audio cable. HDMI gives far better picture and sound quality than a VGA and audio connection. It makes it much easier to see how to connect laptop to smart tv.
