    There is usually a function key you can use on the laptop to tell it where to send the display image.

    Thats because windows "knows" about both screens and your second one has not been setup for use. I find the best way get windows to display on a second screen is to :-

    From OFF
    Connect external screen.
    Open lid of laptop
    Turn laptop on
    Shut lid of laptop
    (I mean shut the lid of the laptop before windows boots)

    Top tip there ! I'll use that myself.
    Once you're in Windows you should open your display properties to make the TV your primary screen so you don't have to do this each time.
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.
