How to Connect a Laptop to a Vizio HDMI

By Jason Taetsch

The High-Definition Multimedia Interface allows for the most straightforward connection between your laptop and your HDMI-enabled Vizio TV. HDMI can handle both audio and video signals over a single cable. It also supports both HD and standard-definition signals so you can be sure you're getting the best quality connection regardless of the video source. Making the connection between your laptop and your TV can be completed quickly if you know where to look.

Things You'll Need

  • HDMI cable

Step 1

Locate the HDMI port on the laptop and on the rear panel of the Vizio TV. HDMI ports resemble thin rectangles with two angled sides. The HDMI port on the laptop is usually located on the side of the computer's body.

Step 2

Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the port on the computer.

Step 3

Insert the opposite side of the cable into the "HDMI" port on the back panel of the Vizio. Press the "Input" button on the Vizio's control panel multiple times until the image from the computer appears on the TV screen.
