How to Set Up My Monitor as HDMI


If you wish to use your computer to play games in high-definition (HD) resolution, set up an HD television or external monitor on your computer. Then, connect the HD monitor to your computer using an HDMI cable.

  • Turn on your computer. Locate the HDMI slot on your computer. This slot is on the side of laptops and on the back of desktop towers.

  • Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI slot on your television. Plug the other end of the cable into the slot on your computer.

  • Click the "Start" button (the Windows-logo button on the lower-left-hand corner of the screen). Select "Control Panel" from the start menu.

  • Select "Adjust screen resolution" underneath the "Appearance and Personalization" tab.

  • Change the resolution to the highest you can (the largest numbers). This provides you with the clearest image on your HDMI screen. Click the "OK" button to save the changes. If the image appears distorted, select the next resolution up or down. Experiment to find one that works.
