Hi,

 

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate and I have a VTX3D Radeon HD5450 graphics card connected to a Cibox LW1922C monitor via a VGA cable and a Panazonic TX-32LZD85 TV via an HDMI cable.

 

When I turn on my TV, I'd like it to be a secondary monitor that I can drag videos onto to watch, however when I currently turn it on it takes over as the main monitor and my PC just shows my wallpaper. Please can someone tell me how to keep my monitor as my primary monitor and for my TV to become my secondary monitor when I turn it on?

 

Thanks,

Joe

Go into your screen setting and make sure your TV is set to be be your extended display and not you monitor.
