Windows 7: Duel screen - Not deactivating when 1 screen is off..

22 Dec 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Duel screen - Not deactivating when 1 screen is off..

I have a 21" monitor and a 42" TV.

I've recently changed my TV however, Before when I turned my TV off my monitor went black for a second or so and all the settings went back to 1 screen (so the mouse didn't go off screen)

Now, When I turn my TV off.. Say I've just been watching a film on WMP and I turn the TV off.. the WMP box is still on my TV... any ideas how to change it so it automatically goes back?

Dear jacko900000,

Please give us more details , is it an external display card or an additional one if yes; please give the model.

Also, I am sure its hdmi connection, please confirm.

Make sure your TV is not the main display by removing the tick from Make this my main display.

Good luck,
