In order to connect your laptop to the monitor, use your HDMI Cable and plug it into the HDMI port on your laptop. Usually, it's on the right side of the laptop, but it can differ depending on the brand and model of the device you have. Be sure the HDMI cable is connected to the monitor as well
Then turn on your monitor, see if it's working
