Well to some what I'm about to say my be like "been there, done that, got the t-shirt"! But I'm rather happy with how my efforts turned out. Today I got it in my head to expand my laptop computing pleasure! I thought to myself, seeing that I just got myself a nice new Samsung 44 inch LCD television with a boat load of various hook up's on the back, including what I was really after, HDMI, why not use the television as a computer monitor! So I went out to Walmart and purchased a HDMI cable. Upon getting home, I went through the motions of setting up my Toshiba laptop for what is what about ready to endure. Set the power plan, so the sucker wouldn't turn itself off when the lid was closed and ect. After turning my TV on and setting the input to HDMI2 I hooked the HDMI cable to the secondary port on the TV and the other end into my laptop. Went into the Nvidia control panel and told it to direct video signal to the HDMI output and presto, after one or two flickers of my TV screen, there was my desktop! After hooking up the computer to the television this is what I saw, the desktop.... Next I ran into a problem I didn't think of while crafting this idea, in order to use any sort of mouse or keyboard, I'm going to have to use the ones on the laptop, my wired USB mouse and external keyboard won't work from about 7 to 8 feet away.I thought myself a little screwed. So I hopped atop my scooter and made my way to my local Goodwill store, seeing I blew a good chunk of coin on that HDMI cable from Walmart, my wallet wasn't that full, let's go second hand and go cheap! After about 10 minutes searching for something that would help me, I came across a used Logictech wireless keyboard and mouse set, it's their Logitech EX 100 combo pack, mouse, keyboard and USB receiver, heck I was even surprised to find the original paperwork and software CD in the box......for $3.00 for this deal, I couldn't beat it, I bought it! Here's the little Logitech combo deal I got........ But another unforeseeable problem arose here! The wireless mouse that came in this combo pack sucks! Oh it works real good, quick, smooth and reliable.....but I need a mouse with those two "forward & backward" buttons where your thumb is, I don't like having to go backwards and forwards surfing the web via the browser buttons. So back on the scooter I went and back up to the Goodwill store! I hit "pay dirt"! I don't think someone knew what they had when making a donation to Goodwill, I found a sick Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer for Bluetooth! This sucker is built solid, got it home and wen into my laptop's higher settings and activated the Bluetooth internal radio and then went about making the mouse and computer talk and play nice with each other. Super screaming deal, only had to fork out $1.00 for this thing. I was curious to know what I had and Googled the mouse and went into their "shopping" thing and found the same mouse going for up to $100.00 for used. Here it is, the Microsoft Intellimouse.......(Even has my forward & backward thumb buttons) So with the purchase of that Microsoft mouse, this bright idea of mine is now a reality! I just wish there wasn't so much "back and forth" when it came to setting this up! I'm just glad everything now works and is smooth. But I know one thing, tonight when it cools off outside, I'm going to get my butt back on my scooter and head to my nearest dollar store and buy a lot of packs of AA and AAA battery's. Well as I close this thing out, one more image to show...... I don't think I've ever seen TechSpot look so big and so good!..... Thank you for your time here folks, sorry to some if again....."been there, done that, got the t-shirt" about this. I'm just excited that's all!
