Try going into the graphics properties. There should be some options. When you have 2 monitors, you should be able to chose, if your laptop is dual monitor capable, to use two monitors and simply display what you see on the laptop onto the tv or other screen. There is another option to send the monitor to the TV, and probably a third option to use both as one large screen. You want to choose the one where you are just displaying the same thing in both places. Good Luck.
