The same church set up works instantly with a different laptop. so it is for sure in the lenovo

Please ignore all premium offers as you do not have to do them, they are not from me and I am very sorry for them....

They are computer generated and I have no control over them nor can i see them

will I just pay 40 for the resolution or do you keep adding money to the fee
Laptop technician: TaylorTech, Lead Technician / Owner replied 2 months ago

It stays same price at $40, unless you opt for a premium service then they are extra so do not take them

Hello
I think, actually, the laptop thinks the second screen is off the right of the laptop screen.I received your answer at my house. I tried to do what you suggested. I notice that the pointer will not go past the right side of the screen at my house. But when connected to the tv at church it will go off the right side and get lost sometimes.Please advise. I am using office 2016Miki
Laptop technician: Jins M. N., Computer Hardware Engineer replied 2 months ago

Windows Logo key + P key works, only when there is an External Display connected. I think, at your church the TV connected as Extended Screen and because of some reason you are not seeing the wall paper on TV and that's why it's dark. Duplicating the display will show the same laptop screen on TV. Try that at Church and let me know the result. When you are at church, if a remote session is possible I can connect and check the issue. If you are interested, please let me know your time zone and the time period you prefer for remote session. Then I can fix a time suitable for both of us.

Happy Easter

Regards

Jins
