    Alan,
    I’m not sure what you have tried yet but please try the following…
    1. Hook up the HDMI from the laptop to the television.
    2. Restart the Laptop and the TV (turn off and back on).
    3. If the TV is recognizing the HDMI please set it to the correct HDMI input source.
    4. If it is still not showing up on the TV, There is usually a FN key and you would hit f5 at the same time. This will switch the output. If you cannot find those keys please send me your full laptop model and we can further troubleshoot from there.
    Good Luck!
