......answering posts at "The Shack" on a 67" Samsung DLP LED monitor. I bought a lease back Dell D810 with a video card and hooked it up to the Samsung just for fun. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it looked. So I bought a Logitech cordless keyboard and mouse, I'm in my Palliser recliner, and I'm loving it!

On your regular desktop, right click/properties/settings and you should (hopefully) have two boxes with a "1" and "2" in them. Left-click on "2" and you should be able to check the box "Extend my Windows Desktop onto this monitor" and make sure the other box about using as primary is unchecked. You can also click "Identify" and if you have the settings right, it'll put a big 1 on your laptop screen and a 2 on your TV screen.

At the very least you should be able to turn off the laptops built in monitor by selecting the blue function key and the F key that has what looks like a monitor (every laptop is different) and then you will be able to up the resolution to fit the 67"
