With time passing and growth in tech, the technology of overhead projectors has now become obsolete.
Modern Projectors bring along interactive capabilities, a brighter-than-ever projection ability, high-quality image projection, and a wireless connection.
Even in some, you can divide the screen into quadrants and project multiple windows simultaneously.
But not all of them have these features. If you lose the wireless connectivity feature, then you might need to connect your laptop to your projector.
But what if you do not have a VGA port on your laptop? Don’t worry! Follow along with us on how to connect the laptop to the projector without a VGA port to find out a solution for yourself.
How To Connect Laptop To Projector Without VGA Port – Using HDMI to VGA Adapter
There is only one way to do it. It involves two major steps which we are having a detailed look at.
1. First Step
How to connect the laptop to a projector with HDMI?
First of all, make sure to turn your laptop off. Once that is done, in a simple way all you have to do is connect the external video port to the projector via a video cable.
But Did you mention not having a VGA port? Yes, you did. In that case, you need to get yourself an HDMI to VGA adapter.
This will allow you to link the VGA projector to the HDMI output of your laptop.
These adapters are capable enough to ensure the provision of a 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution.
It does not require any external power source so, with minimum effort and cost, you are getting an amazing output result.
2. Second Step
Now all you have to do is plug in the power cable of your projector into an electrical power socket and turn it on.
Once you have done it, you may now turn your laptop on and get going with it.
If you need audio for watching a video or a presentation, you will need to connect the “audio out” port from your laptop to some sound system or the projector itself if it has some sort of speaker.
