You need to either setup the HDTV to clone the desktop or be set up as an extended monitor. Setting it up as an extended monitor means you can use the laptop screen to do other things like surf the net.

How to do this depends on what graphics core your laptop has (AMD, nVidia Intel). The step are basically similar you need to get to the graphics properties / graphics control panel to do it.

The following are steps for Intel:
