I have my Samsung TV connected through HDMI. Every time I turn it on, my G75 makes it my primary display and turns my laptop display off. Can I just output my video signal manually instead?

Have you tried configuring your displays in NVIDIA Control Panel?

There's no such thing there to set.

If running the latest Nvidia drivers, you can configure multiple displays. I have my TV setup as a secondary/extended display, and it doesn't affect the main laptop display at all for me when unplugging/reconnecting the HDMI.

You can definitely configure this via the NVidia drivers, but I'm not sure about the stock ones. You can download the latest drivers from the Nvidia driver support page and new non-BETA drivers were released today for download.
