Question about Toshiba Satellite P30 P35 Series Notebook
Hello everyone, I have a Toshiba P30. A few days ago I connected to a stand alone screen as a clone monitor and made it the primary display. Now I am away from the clone and can't see anything; i.e. the screen is completely blank - except for the mouse arrow taunting me. Right click does nothing in this mode.
Any ideas of how I can restore the screen settings without attaching the laptop to another screen.
The screen problem is as I described - you need to be able to change it back to the LCD screen.
With no control of the mouse buttons life is a bit tricky. I assume you are using the built in mouse controls. If you are then try connecting a usb mouse.
Try removing all power from the laptop (mains and battery) allow it to stand, press the ON button (sounds stupid I know but do it) connect back up the power and boot. As it is going through the very first of the boot stages keep tapping at F8 until the boot options screen comes up. Select last known good configuration and enter. See what happens then with the mouse.

Take a look at the keyboard and find the FN button on the bottom left. (The letters FN are in blue)
Now look at the F keys at the top of keyboard and find one that has either a couple of monitor symbols or the letters CRT/LCD - again in blue
Holding down the FN key and press the other key, this should change screens between the external and internal monitors. Don't expect an instant change - it sometimes takes a couple of seconds to do the job.
If that does not work then attach another external monitor, right click on the screen and select properties. Now select the far right tab (settings) and then go to Advanced tab and then select Monitor
Here you should be able to change screens back to the LCD of the laptop
