So you need to connect your PS 4 to PC monitor, right?

Customer Replay


Got it.
Could you please use the HDMI cable and connect your PS4 to the monitor through it?

Customer Replay

The HDMI cable is already connected to the pc

You need to connect it to the monitor, not PC

I don't have a monitor just a laptop

Got it.
It is not possible to use your laptop as your monitor for PS4 as it can only send the image through HDMI port, not receive it.
