What your doing is for the online services that you access with Apps.

If you want to display from the Laptop, as your Laptop model does not have HDMI, you use the VGA port on the Laptop, and this adapter.

Click me to view

You then plug the adapter Video cable into the TV and it displays everything on the Laptop, on the TV.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
