Hi guys,


Could use a lending hand. 


System specs:


Sapphire Radeon R7 260X 2 GB GDDR5 HDMI/DVI-I/DP OC Version PCI-Express http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00U8IS47A?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00

HP pavilion h8-1010 http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02838702 


I'm trying to set up dual display (mirror what's on my PC to my T.V.).  I've had success with this in the past, but cannot get it to work with my new GPU and windows 10.  I hit the windows key + 'P' and side screen opens from the right and I choose "duplicate."  THEN, when I connect the hdmi port from the GPU to the T.V., my desktop monitor goes to sleep, but I can see my desktop from the T.V.  If I then unplug the hdmi from my GPU to the T.V., the desktop monitor doesn't wake up.  I have to unplug the desktop monitor itself from the video card, then plug it back in.  So at no point in time can I have both displays, it's either one or the other.  I also tried using the T.V. display to go in and have my PC automatically detect the other monitor (so both T.V. and desktop monitor were connected), but it says there's no other monitor to detect.  My video drivers are up to date.  Any ideas?
