Do you mean your monitor or do you mean that you've hooked up your TV to your PC as a display device?

If you've got your desktop wallpaper on your TV then the signal is getting through. Are there any options in the graphics card menu? Right click on the desktop, properties, settings, advanced, geforce tab. Have a look in there but apart from that I'm unsure. But don't give up hope there are some very tech minded individuals on this forum. lol
