    I'd try hooking up the HDMI cable, switching on the TV and then firing the laptop up - mine then recognises the TV automatically and displays the desktop on the TV and a copy of the desktop background on the laptop display.

    You may need to right click on your desktop, select settings, then display. Here you can determine what to display and where.


    Shout back if this doesn't help.

    Good luck,

    Simon
