Hello! I want to watch movies from my laptop on my TV so i needed to find VGA – HDMI cable. I bought VGA – HDMI adapter that was in the MAC section (I don't know why), but when I put everything together I still couldn't make it work. My laptop detects the second screen, but usually when I used to do it with VGA – VGA cable my desktop was shown on TV, this time TV screen was black and I couldn't change it. Please assist.

How to connect laptop with VGA to TV with HDMI

Assuming the adapter works (VGA to HDMI isn't very reliable), it's possible that your new TV doesn't support the resolution that is coming from the laptop — or the adapter doesn't support the resolution. Because you've used external monitors in the past, I assume you know about Fn-F5 to activate your laptop's VGA output.

Many HDTV's do have a VGA port already, but I guess yours doesn't…?

Check the specifications of the adapter and the TV, and make sure the resolutions all the way across are supported.
