I just bought a new computer, an HP Envy. We used a HDMI to connect to our old computer and assumed it would be just as easy to hook up the new one, not. so. much. When I plug in the cord, it shows what should be on my computer screen on the T.V screen but, when I look at my screen, it has my screen saver and I am confused. I am not a techy girl, kind of a dork, what am I missing? Can you help me?? :/
I need simple directions.

The screen on the computer shows my screen saver, but will not show the mouse movement. The t.v. screen shows the screen I want example: daretv.com. It's like the tv screen is showing what I want but the computer screen is not. Very frustrated, I think I need to configure settings but I'm not sure how to do it.
