You've added a display to your laptop, so now you have two. You could drag things from one screen to the other or go into the display settings on your laptop to change what happens when you add another display. It's really not a Roku issue.

I had the computer hooked to our old TV and it displayed perfectly, I do not think this is a computer issue, I think it is the way this Roku TV displays it. And I wen to settings on the TV and every setting I tried did nothing to fix it

Can you drag a window from your laptop display to the TV screen? If so, it's not a Roku issue.
