How to Connect Dell XPS 13 Laptop to TV

Some users ask that how they can connect their XPS 13 laptop to the TV? It is because they want to play their favorite YouTube videos and iPlayer on the laptop and they want to display them on their TV. Well! It seems a hard nut to crack but not a flying pig. I am going to explain here how I do it whenever I want to display my favorite songs from my laptop to the TV.

You need to get “Dell adapter” for this purpose because it will not only include the “VGA and Ethernet” but also includes “HDMI and DVI.” You can search this adapter in the online stores like eBay and Amazon, and it will cost you £60. But some users do not want to spend this much money so; they can use a cheaper adapter from any local company rather than Dell. It will cost them only £20.01. Check this USB-C on Amazon(No affiliate link).

You can use it not only with your XPS 13 model, but also with XPS 15, and all of the latest models of ASUS and Lenovo Yoga 900 model. You do not need to connect it to the port of any other hub. Just connect directly to the adapter of the host device. Use your HDMI cable to attach with the adapter that will display your songs and videos on the TV screen. Don’t forget to enable the USB-C devices by using the DisplayPort Alternate Mode. Otherwise, it will not work.

How to Use It

Some people misunderstand that it is a “Plug & Play” device and they throw it when it does not work after plugging in. That is quite a wrong attitude. Let me explain what to do once you have plugged it into your computer.

When you connect this device with your XPS 13, you will see that your system has recognized it. It displays it as a “thumb drive.” Now it disappears.

Wait for a few seconds until it gives you a second appearance.

It will show you an application and ask you to install this app on your system.

Here, you need to use the instructions appearing on the screen to complete the installation process.

Once, you have done with it; you will be asked to reboot the system.

When the desktop appears after the reboot, you will see a mirror window. You can maximize the display if you like. Now it is ready to use.

Now try to display your desired video songs from YouTube or iPlayer on TV that is already attached to your laptop with the help of USB-C.

It worked very well when I was using Windows 8.1, and now I am using Windows 10, it again works fine.

How to Play Runescape Game on Android

Runescape is one of the most attractive games for PC users. It is basically a 2D Java MMORPG where you perform a variety of tasks. You fight the monsters, you do fishing, mining and fight combats with other players. You also play woodcutting activity in the game. Unlike the other games, you do not find monotony in it, and this feature of the game makes it worth playing time and again. That’s the reason the users want to get this game on their Android devices to use as the best time-killing activity, and they do not find a way. Well! It is not an uphill task. You do not require rooting your Android phone. I am going to discuss a couple of tools to help you in playing this game to your Android device.

GNURoot RuneScape

You can get this tool on Google Play. It works very well to fulfill your desire of playing Runescape on Android phone. There are no hard and fast rules to download and run this app, but you should mind one thing that the game you want to play on your Android device needs a lot of space. If your internal storage is small, it will not open because you are going to run two very powerful apps including the game and the GNURoot software at the same time. So, check the internal space and free up as much space as you can to run it smoothly.

Download it here.

  • When you install this tool, you need to tap on its icon to launch it.
  • Here, you will see an option “Install/Reinstall.” Tap this option to proceed further.
  • Now select “Install X Support” that is important to run every graphical app, and since you are going to play a compelling game, it needs to install.
  • When you enter “GNURoot Runescape Installer”, you need to tap the option “Install/Update” to install the basic packages and Linux client for this game.
  • In the same installer, there will be another option “Signup for Runescape.” You need to select this option to create your account for this game. It will be either a free or paid account. The choice is yours.
  • Now select the option “Launch Runescape.”
  • Now close the app’s window and return to the game that has been launched.

(If you want to avoid installing an active Debian rootFS, relevant packages and Linux Runescape client, you should install “Hacker’s keyboard” that will lessen your burden of fixing all of the above-discussed tools).
