How Can I connect my HP Laptop to a Samnung Smart TV? My laptop does not have WiDi so I was thinking about a VGA to HDMI converter. I purchased this one from CDW it didn’t work HDMI to VGA Adapter Converter for Desktop/Laptop/Ultrabook (Mfg. Part: HD2VGAE2)

    Most modern TVs will have a VGA connector, plus a 3.5mm jack for audio. I'm assuming your laptop doesn't have an HDMI output, which would give you video and audio in one cable, as well as a better display (VGA is analog RGB).

    Assuming your laptop has VGA output and your TV HDMI input, you got the wrong converter! What you need is something like which is in fact much simpler (similar models are available from eBay for a fraction of the price).
    The critical thing is that these converters work one direction only, and you need a VGA to HDMI converter, not the other way round.
