If this is not too old SONY, I doubt any adjustments would be needed. I have 50 in SONY BRAVIA, and I just put HDMI into laptop, and have instant picture on TV.
There is small problem with my older 42 in LG, because I am using RGB cable (only because I had one long, spare), and somehow my laptop resolution is 1360, but TV resolution is 1366 (It's actually full HD, but I didn't tried to force it yet). So keep in mind, that your TV could have better supported resolution, than laptop, so make sure you are setting it as second monitor, or your laptop screen would go black. HDMI cable also transfers sound, so you just use TV Remote for everything.
And, if you actually buy ANDROID TV (like SONY BRAVIA), it also works as wireless display for your ANDROID Smartphone. Setting it takes only few seconds. You can project pictures, movies, or even working screen onto TV, without problem.
As long as TV is not too old LCD, WINDOWS should actually recognize it, and its resolution.
