I want to have an extended display from this laptop to my TV. The problem is this:

laptop have only the following connections

Hi Marc,

In theory our USB graphics adapter should work with your system, but please note that there will be some sacrifice of frame rate on a slightly old machine like that. Since the CPU is not very powerful for a USB graphics, you may not satisfy the performance.

Please install the latest drivers from the download site
(http://plugable.com/drivers/displaylink).

Another note is, we recommend to use 3 feet (about 1 meter) length of USB 3.0 cable for the quality purpose. It will need most of the cable length on the HDMI side.

If they have any problems, just reply back here and we’ll be glad to help!
