Just connect the external monitor to the vga output and then press the fn key and the video output change key in the laptop. that's it

even with the fn key not pressed the video output should come right away when you connect the monitor.

if ur laptop doesn't have vga connector. then look for the appropriate connector.

Compaq Presario CQ50-110US 15-inch Laptop dropped will boot but no video

Your laptop may have a combination of problems. Since the laptop was dropped, it is possible that your may a motherboard that no longer outputs video through the video controller, or the screen may have been damaged internally. Try hooking up an external monitor through the vga output of your laptop, usually located on the side or back of the laptop. If the external monitor works, then most likely it is your screen that's bad, if the external monitor doesn't works, then most likely it is your motherboard that's bad.

Let me know if this helps.

My son's Compaq CQ50-139wm's screen is shattered (Don't ask). I would like to use the laptop as a desktop unit. I can not see the field where the password is to be entered (I have guessed dozens of times...

you can attach an external monitor to the VGA(monitor) port on the laptop itself and then pressing the key sequence on the laptop to switch betwwen monitors.
usually Fn+(one of the top F keys ,there is a monitor sysmbol on it).
If you are lucky ,the external monitor might already work just by connecting it lol.

Laptop will only boot/power on when external monitor is attached

Sounds to me like you have a short inside your system somewhere, or you have a faulty display/graphics card is going bad. You will probably have to replace your display and/or graphics card. On most laptops, if they dont have a dedicated graphics card, and they use an embedded one, then the whole screen has to be replaced. if the graphics card Is dedicated, then you probably can just have the card replaced, and not the whole screen.
