Your laptop should have a Function key and a monitor toggle button. THe function key is normally labeled "Fn" in the lower left corner of the keyboard, and the monitor toggle button is usually in the F-key row (F1-F12) at the top. Look for the key that has a picture of one or two monitors or rectangles. Hold the Function key down and press the toggle button a time or two. This should move you through the different viewing modes. What kind of laptop is it?

I have a toshiba laptop with bad screen.I would like hook up external monitor as a primary monitor


Laptops dating back some 10yrs ago had VGA ports on them. Unless your Toshiba is a dinosaur, it should also contain the VGA port. From this port, you could hook up an external desktop style monitor and still use your laptop.

You should check your owners manual for instructions on how to hook up your laptop to a monitor and do the same with the monitor manual on how to hook it up to a laptop computer. If this does not help, you may need to make a call to technical services for assistance. Hope this helps you with your problem.
