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,

Windows screen flashes, random grey screen & random black screen
This is driving me crazy. Right after I boot my laptop, the screen flashes randomly. Also something is stealing focus from what I am working on to something else. Then it likes to suddenly go to a grey screen. I have to manually reboot. If that is not enough, it like to just reboot.
