The monitor on my laptop has been broken for a while so i'm using an external monitor, now all of a sudden when the laptop gets to the loggin screen it switches to the native (broken) laptop monitor and the secondary monitor switches off and i have no way to see anything on screen inorder to fix it unless i boot in safe mode. is there anyway to fix this in safe mode so when i boot in normal mode the display treats the second monitor as its native one again? please help!

Lenovo g550 laptop with an external monitor would only display of broken original screen after crash dump


Firstly you need to get your external monitor working. Have you tried pressing FN+F3 while turned on, (may take several presses).

If you can get the external monitor working then you'll need to run windows in safe mode and try removing any new drivers you installed. or try a 'Last Known good' on start up this depends on the OS version.

Have a Gateway Notebook KAV-60 with a broken screen. Trying to connect to an external monitor without any prompts or commands, as I can't see the screen. With an Acer Netbook I just plugged in the


Make sure the vga cable is in tight on the kav-60 and the external monitor.

Try the keystrokes to toggle the display. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left on the keyboard then hit the key F1 thru F12 that toggles the display. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have LCD/CRT on it or it will have the icon of a display. The display toggles in three stages ( laptop only, external only or both laptop and external).

How to use external monitor on a toshiba laptop with external monitor


It's probably best to buy a keyboard off auction sites or a new screen, the Function keys are not OS sensitive so a different keyboard will not work with them, they are device specific and require special drivers to operate.
Are keys broken or are they just missing? the membrane will still work to a firm press even if the key is missing.

keyboards can be found on auction sites

sorry I can't help more.

Aspire 4930, Model no. JAL90 purchased on 31.3.2009.On 22.12.2010 suddenly display stopped working. What is the solution


Hello
The display of your laptop may go dark in one of two scenarios.
  • Physical damage that has resulted into a cracked or broken screen, if your laptop is dropped, especially with its case opened.
  • Malfunctioning of video power or control circuitry
If your laptop screen is physically damaged you should determined whether there is other damages to the laptop. You can plug an external monitor by using the video output connector to ascertain this. If your applications function of this external monitor you can simply go LCD screen repair and you can be sure that you will be able to recover your data. On the other hand, if there is no physical damage to your laptop screen and it goes blank you can connect to an external monitor and determine if other components of the laptop are functional. These steps will help you in your repair decision.
Good Luck

Connect broken laptop screen to external monitor


Suggestion- on my toshiba fn-f5 switches display modes, but to remove display connectors, you may have messed up your keyboard ribbon cable connection. it probably has a small sliding lock to hold it in place- if the lock isn't tight, your keyboard may not be recognized, which could mess up your display. Also, make sure your battery is charged and/or your power supply to your laptop is connected. hope this helps!

ACER cracked screen..external monitor???


Hi there.
The keyboard toggle you are using is the correct one.
Sometimes you have to hit Fn + F5 a couple of times to stay on there is no real set time. Make sure Fn + F6 is on so the laptop screen stays on.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Nec laptop screen not displayin


What have you tried so far?
Connect your laptop to an external monitor to see if it is the adapter or the screen that is broken. Toggle on to the external monitor. If the external monitor works, you'll know it is the laptop screen(or a component of it) that needs repair
Check your laptop latch to see if it is broken.
