Connecting a Windows Laptop to Classroom AV System via HDMI

Question

How do I connect my Windows laptop up to the classroom AV system using an HDMI cord?

Answer

There are three different typed of HDMI ports: regular, mini & micro. The HDMI ports in the AV system are regular . Follow the steps below to connect your device.

  1. Turn on the AV system.
  2. Plug your HDMI cable into the laptop's HDMI port.
  3. Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into the AV system (this will require a Regular HDMI end).
  4. On the touch panel, select your display choice and select HDMI.
  5. Your device is now connected.

*Please note: Most new PC laptops have HDMI ports. HDMI cables are not provided in the classroom nor by ITS.

Troubleshooting

  • If laptop image does not appear on the projector/flatscreen, verify the HDMI cable is securely attached to the ports. 
  • If image does not appear, restart the system.  This will restart the video projectors as well as the touch panel.
  • Confirm laptop resolution is set to the lowest available.
