There is usually a function key combination to switch the video output from the laptop. On my Tosh it is F5. (See if there is a small screen printed on any function key).

Press this and it will toggle the display to screen/external mon itor (TV)/both screen and external.

On my tosh its Fn and F7

Also check the graphics driver and see if you can do it from there...

Go into Control Panel, Depending on your Graphics check Display Adapter settings. Look for two monitors
