    I was trying to set up my tv as an external monitor for my Toshiba Satellite laptop..but it wouldn't work so I just tried fooling around with the different functions in the display properties..I ended up selecting the 2nd screen and checking the box that says 'extend my desktop onto monitor' and then my laptop screen went black with my wallpaper on it, and then went totally blank with only my white mouse arrow. I can't click anything, and I think my screen is set on 2 monitors because the mouse disappears when I move it to both sides. How do I set it back to normal? or at least get my desktop back so I can fix this?

    Help please!!

    How did you fix this? We are having the same difficulty using a laptop with a Projector and get the same symptoms you did.

    Please help.
