Re: half screen activated only
When only a half screen is produced, it is usually a upper or lower buffer board, if the top half is blank then it is the upper buffer, and of course if it's the bottom half then it's the bottom buffer board

Keep in mind that if you want to see the same display on both screen ie dual display then it will set the resolution to the screen with the smallest resolution, which may look a little sucky if you are running 1080p TV with lower resolution laptop screen, the other option is to choose extend screen
Because your laptop needs it's display setting changing so your second monitor is active.
While on your desktop, right click once and a box will appear, choose "properties" at the bottom.
There you will see another box, choose the "settings" tab at the top right and this will show your display options.
Right click on the number two box and "attach" it.
You may also have to change the size of the display to fit your tv.

It seems as if the Picture-in-Picture feature of your television is activated. Please take a look at the remote control and find the PIP button and press it, this should bring the picture into full-screen and allow you to hear the audio.
Look at the back of your TV. Make sure your cable is hooked up to connector on far right, NOT the far left. (For analog cable TV.)
Push "source" button on remote or side of TV to cycle through TV inputs. Wait one second between pushes. You want to stop just before the source that displays "AV" on TV screen. It should show a number, for the current channel number.
If you are using an analog cable box, try setting the TV channel to 3 or 4. If you use no cable box, try changing channels on TV to find an active one. If no luck, make sure your cable service is active (subscription active). Cable companies disconnect it between residents of an apartment/house.
