Most Lenovo laptops have an HDMI port that you can use to connect the laptop to an external monitor or HDTV. This is a great way to expand your laptop’s screen real estate, or to simply connect to a larger display for watching movies or giving presentations. Here’s how to do it:
- First, make sure that your Lenovo laptop is powered off. Then, locate the HDMI port on the back or side of the laptop. It will look like a small, rectangular port with a tiny HDMI logo next to it.
- Next, take your HDMI cable and plug one end into the HDMI port on your Lenovo laptop. Then, plug the other end of the cable into the HDMI port on your external monitor or HDTV.
- Once the cable is plugged in, power on your external display. Then, press the Fn key on your Lenovo laptop’s keyboard, and while holding it down, press the F7 key. This will cause your Lenovo laptop to switch the display output to the HDMI port.
- If everything is working properly, you should now see your Lenovo laptop’s display on the external monitor or HDTV. You can adjust the resolution and other display settings by right-clicking on the desktop and selecting Display Settings.
And that’s all there is to it! Connecting your Lenovo laptop to an external display using HDMI is a quick and easy way to increase your screen real estate or to simply connect to a larger display. Just remember to press the Fn key and F7 key to switch the display output when you first plug in the HDMI cable.
