I'm running windows 7 and its control panel is similar to vista's. Heres how I connect to another monitor on my computer. open control panel and click on appearance and personalization or whatever it is in vista. you should then have an option to "connect to an external display" or something like that. there you should have an option to mirror your screen onto your tv. let me know if it works or not.

Size for televisions don't always equate to higher resolutions. Despite being 73 inches, your DLP television still has a resolution of 1080p.
