    I have just connected my new latptop via hdmi output to my HDTV, i was offered 3 options by windows vista, I think I have selected the wrong option as I cannot make the HDTV my main monitor (the option is greyed out) and the best I can do is extend the desktop display to the TV which merely shows a small version of my desktop backround (no icons or taskbars) at a very low 30Hz.

    is there any way I can revert to the options that vista offered me? as one was to make the external display my main monitor, they seemed like automatic options like when you plug in a flash drive or a blank CD or something, but they won't reappear once I remove the HDMI cable and plug it back in.

    Thanks in advance!
