Dual Monitor Issues

I am trying to connect my Panasonic TV to my laptop, which is running LM 17.3. I connect via an HDMI cable. The issues:

1. LM recognises the TV and brings up the Display window. I can't select the option to 'Mirror Displays'

2. If I select my laptop as the primary, Icant bring up windows from the taskbar.

3. If I select the TV as the primary, then the laptop display disapears.

4. The sound does not work on the TV. Only the laptop.

We are going to need a bit more information first.

Which Desktop Environment?
i.e. Gnome, Cinnamon, XFCE, KDE, etc.

What video card is in the laptop?
Here is quick tutorial on how to find out:

Thanks for the reply. Problem solved. Linux Mint was not recognising my Nvidia card. I booted up Windows which was. Shutdown and rebooted LM17.3 and it all works fine now. Desktop was Gnome.
