Hi there,

I'm really hoping that you are able to help me resolve this problem I'm having with my Dell Latitude E6420 laptop.

When I plug an HDMI cable into the tv from the laptop. I get the picture on the tv, but lose it from the laptop.

I've tried changing the ports over. But nothing.

On the laptop I get the icons on the task bar but not on the laptop screen. But they all appear and are usable on the tv screen.

I've also tried the F8 Function. But this doesn't work.

Any help and ideas as to how to solve this would be greatly appreciated.

FN + F8 should cycle through the display options, and I believe you would also see an onscreen icon of the mode selected. Options are typically laptop screen, external, or both.
