So I have a Samsung RF510 Model and I just bought a fairly large flatscreen Samsung smart TV. I thought I could buy any old HDMI cord to hook up my laptop to this TV but the HDMI cord I bought was too big to fit in my HDMI laptop port. How do I know what HDMI cord to buy for my laptop?

any hdmi cable should do unless it's using mini (type c) or micro (type d) but looking at the laptop on the site it should be a regular cable...

I tried hooking up the normal HDMI that we got from bestbuy but the HDMI port on my laptop is about the size of a usb port if no skinnier/smaller. This HDMI cord is a 240. I'm not sure if that makes a difference

I don't even own a users manual anymore :/  brb googling

**EDIT**

Users manual doesnt say anything and this HDMI definitely doesn't fit in it's HDMI port on either of my laptops but fits fine in my blueray player and TV... Not sure what this means exactly... HDMI 240 also doesn't mean size like i thought it did :S

I am thinking I need a "mini" type 'C' HDMI cord but my question now is, can I get the other side to be standard HDMI?

Do both ends of that cable fit in the tv's hdmi port? The manual nor any reference that I could find state that its any different than the standard hdmi connector... and the picture sure looks like a standard hdmi port so I'm thinking the cable is goofey.

Yeah both ends fit into my TV fine and my Blu-ray Player so I guess I just need a HDMI mini

LOL - they don't even list an HDMI cable as an accessory.

I would like to know if you've tried to contact their support to get an answer and if they responded, how was their CS?

The HDMI port is next to the two USB ports on the left side. It is a standard HDMI port.
