Windows 7: Setup multiple monitors (Help).

Setup multiple monitors (Help).

Hi

I am trying to connect an external TV to my laptop using HDMI connection.
I turned off both of them.
Connected the cable
turned on the TV.
Turned on my laptop.
Everything is fine while the windows starting, everything is displayed on the TV, (which is determined from the bios setup).
When the welcome screen appears, it appears on the laptop, not on the TV.
nothing appears on the TV.
I entered the resolution page and pressed the detect button, all what I get is "Another display not detected"
I tried updating my nvidia card driver.
I searched the internet for any help, I found that this problem happens with a lot of people, most of them say that this problem happened only with windows 7, and the external TV was detected easily using windows XP or Vista.

Please help.

This thread is from nvidia forums showing that the problem is not in the display card driver and all of them have the problem when upgraded to windows 7.
