Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My laptop's HDMI port is stuck!

\015 I just recently got a Compaq Presario CQ50 laptop, and it turns outthat the HDMI port on the left side has a little plastic insert in it,blocking the little socket from its fate of sending and receivinginformation. I've tried going at it with a screwdriver, a fork, aknife, etc. to try and pry it out, but to no avail. Please help meh!\015

Answers :

If you bought the same one as myself CQ50-110us then the plastic plug means you have no HDMI. look closer on the box or on the website for more info.
