    Updated to windows 10 while connected to my tv via hdmi

    Hey guys,
    I updated my windows 7 acer to windows 10 while i was connected to my tv screen via hdmi... but now my screen doesnt show up on my laptop at all. It only shows up once i connect my laptop to my tv via hdmi... so i cant actually use my laptop without my tv screen which is difficult while trying to study... i am desperate to get this fixed... if anyone has any ideas please let me know

    Win+P key. Select PC Screen or Second Screen only options - whichever goes to the laptop screen.

    Try the Function key to switch the monitor setting. from Laptop to external. Your laptop thinks that it is still connected to the tv and is holding onto the profile for the screen settings, which 10 has a nasty habit of doing.
