Do you have the display open when you turn on the laptop and leaving it open? You may need to open the laptop, turn it on, then close it quickly so it detects the TV as the main monitor. Or try another output if you have it, VGA maybe.

You'll need to get a keyboard and mouse to use if you have the screen closed though.

In the Power Options > Advanced Options > Choose what closing the Lid does > choose "Do Nothing" ...
Then when you Restart, close the lid, and it forces the second screen to be the only one in use, for factory resets or whatever you need :)
