how the **** do i sync my laptop and tv?

this is extremely aggravating considering hdmi cables aren't cheap. i bought this cable a few months ago and it used to work perfectly. i would just connect the tv and compute and it would sync up fine. id watch netflix perfectly on my tv

now when i connect, either the laptop or tv takes a shit and itll be like the desktop shows on my tv but not my laptop or vise versa or the sound comes from the laptop but not the tv or the desktop shows on both but its never in sync IT DOESNT MAKE ANY ****ING SENSE ITS SUPPOSED TO BE A ****ING MIRROR IMAGE

i looked it up and tried display settings but it doesnt listen to me either it just ****s it up even more. how do i fix this? why is this shit so diffcult to figure out in the year 2015 ffs

First off, HDMI cables are very cheep. If you pay more than $2 you got scammed by the enormous markup that most stores charge. They sell them at the dollar stores here, or you ca go into Walmart and pay $50, or you can go to Futureshop and pay $100.

Secondly, you can fix it in the display settings. But, if you have windows 7 you can just press Windows Key + P and it'll ask where you want the display: Computer, Projector, Duplicate or Extend.

windows key + P

for the audio problem, right click on the sound icon on your taskbar and select playback devices. Set your TV to default

yeah this never worked for me ever either.

even got my laptop stuck displaying a blank screen for a bit this one time because i accidentally selected "display to TV only" and when i unplugged the HDMI it got stuck or something.

then i just gave up and got a Chromecast.

and then i let my mom borrow it and she never uses it, but still won't let me have it back so i'm probably just gonna buy a new one.

only thing i'd need the chromecast for is HBO GO, but i can just watch that shit on demand anyway.

Install new display drivers. Try different inputs. Also, whats wrong with having the desktop on your tv and your computer screen turned off? Thats how i use the laptop with my tv. It's way more convenient.

Might need some more holes for that. They tend to float better.

Yeah, but why does it have to be fast if you're just going to sync it? If anything, you want it to be slow so it can't get out of the water in time.
