VNC should be the answer.

From Wikipedia:

Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is a graphical desktop-sharing system that uses the Remote Frame Buffer protocol (RFB) to remotely control another computer. It transmits the keyboard and mouse events from one computer to another, relaying the graphical-screen updates back in the other direction, over a network.

With VNC, you can control another computer or a group of computers available on a local network.

The procedure is as follows:
Install Real VNC server on your computer, and Real VNC viewer on your Android tablet. Your computer and Android tablet should be connected to the same network; if you don't have a WiFi connection, you can use your mobile WiFi hotspot or USB tethering to connect your computer for which you needn't require mobile data pack.

For your HDMI solution, I believe your tablet support OTG functionality. Buy HDMI adapter and an OTG cable. I believe it should do the job. I fear the HDMI streaming could go opposite, so VNC should be your choice as HDMI would drain the battery and you won't be able to charge your tablet in between.
