A Modal answer with band 7+

A few months before, I was trying to plug-in my laptop to the television display to watch a downloaded 3D movie. However, after I connected the HDMI cable at both sides, a video displayed on the TV for a while and suddenly turned off.

As I said, I was about to watch a 3D movie named Frozen 2 television. I had a plan to watch other few movies as well. My few friends also had joined me to enjoy. And I had prepared popcorn and chicken platters so that we could eat during watching a movie. But due to suddenly the HDMI port in my laptop broken, it ruins our plan.

I tried to troubleshoot the issue but couldn't manage to fix it. We had also agreed to watch on the laptop's small screen, but that also turns out not functioning. Because the main issue was the display card on the motherboard was malfunctioning. Also, I had opened the laptop to inspect what's wrong with it, due to a lack of technical knowledge I couldn't able to diagnose and find the problem.

Overall, As we ended up canceling our plan, I felt very sad about it. And also I apologize to my friends for the laptop's problem. I will never forget the embarrassment I felt in front of my friends.
