  1. You get the computer screen but not the icons?

    Do you normally get the icons on your computer?
  2. Best answer
    This is happening because you are extending your pc's display to your tv. Right click your desktop and click the screen resolution tab. Then, where it say's extend this display, change that to duplicate or show only on your hdtv.
  3. Or hold the windows key and press p.

    It thinks you're trying to have different stuff in the two screens.
  4. Thanks a lot. Your answer helped me to sort out my HDMI issue.
