Hello,

It's possible that the TV was configured as an extension of the computer's screen. You can test this assumption by dragging an icon off the computer's screen onto the TV's screen.

If you want to configure the TV as an exact duplicate of the computer. Then you should select "clone" in the control panel controls for the monitor.

Good Luck
