Hello. I just recently got a Skyworth 24' LED TV since I was told that it was possible to connect a laptop to a TV as a replacement monitor. My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 5437 and it's ribbon is broken, so no screen display. When I connected them, only the wallpaper, mouse and some Taskbar stuff showed up, and when I try to open anything on the Taskbar it doesn't pop up. I read a previous question here about screen duplicate and I managed to fix that on a different TV we have {which I used for a while but can't becuase its the family TV and I need this for home base work}. I somehow was able to get the control panel stuff to pop up, but once I got to NVDIA settings, it wouldn't come up at all, just an icon on the Taskbar saying it's there. Any other apps I try to open can't be clicked by the mouse since it's on the TV screen and not on the laptop screen? It's hard to explain and I really need help ty ❤
