If you have a laptop that runs a Blu-ray player, the screen on the computer is high definition. This means you can watch an HD Blu-ray on your laptop and also on an HD television. You can connect your Blu-ray-playing laptop to an HD television through two different cable ports on the computer, both of which plug directly into an HDMI port on your high-definition television.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

  1. 1

    Look at your laptop computer to see if you have an HDMI cable port. This port is roughly half an inch wide and provides both the HD audio and video signal. If you don't, you are going to use a DVI port on the laptop. This is the same port you use to connect monitors to your computer.

  2. 2

    Plug the DVI-to-HDMI adaptor into the DVI port on the laptop with the Blu-ray player. If you have an HDMI port on your laptop, you can skip this step.

  3. 3

    Connect an HDMI cable to the HDMI end of the adaptor. If you have an HDMI port, plug the cable directly into the HDMI port.

  4. 4

    Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the HD television. Power on your television, press the "Input" button and select "HDMI." You can now see the contents from your Blu-ray player on the TV.
