I'm trying to use my lcd hdtv as a secondary monitor via my hdmi port. but as soon as I plug it in it automatically makes the TV the primary monitor, and wont let me switch back the laptop screen. I'm trying to keep my laptop screen as my primary monitor, where all my icons and start bar are, but its switching it around so that either my only display is the TV or all my icons and start bar on are on the TV and the laptop screen is the secondary monitor. When I go into display settings the box for "make this my main monitor" on the laptop screen is greyed out and i cant click it.

If you need any other info just let me know but this is killing me.
