Question about Computers & Internet

I have a Compaq CQ-60 615DX laptop with a broken screen. Because of the screen, I can't log into Windows. I used to be able to connect to a monitor, and use the Fn key to toggle between screens. That no longer works. Is there anyone who can offer a solution?

If you are not able to login and the external monitor doesnt work any more your best bet is to have the screen replaced

SOURCE: Dell D600 LCD issue

What I've found on two laptops I've worked on in the past two years is that in a case like this, there is a little pin near the power button (or on the strip up near the display) that tells the laptop when the monitor is closed.  If that pin gets stuck, the computer will think it's shut all of the time.  The sensor is only active in normal mode of windows with the drivers installed (if it's in safe mode or VGA mode  the sensor does not work until you raise the resolution.  the sensor doesn't work at all if you boot from a knoppix cd.)

You may be able to just flick the pin and get it unstuck, but in some cases you have to remove it all togther.

To remove it, turn the lapotp off. lean the monitor back as far as it can go (don't force it). You then need to carefuly pry up the strip that the power button is on (ussually there is a space you can pry open on the left or right side of the strip depending on the model laptop; be very careful not to break anything).  You can then pop it out with a small knife or tweesers and clip the strip back down.

If you don't feel comfortable doing this, then find someone who is.

I hope this helps someone.

SOURCE: connect broken laptop screen to external monitor

I would back mothmans answer 100% but might suggest you re-assemble the display to the laptop if you continue to have problems getting an external display going.

When upgrading your operating system like windows 7, some hardware driver will be outdated and cause not to ffunction properly. Solution is to download sound driver compatible with windows 7. Otherwise, it will not work properly as you mention. Try to find thru websearch by typing your laptop model number and its free.

You've got a loose connection between the laptop and the internal screen. Take the computer to a qualified technician, tell him/her the symptoms, especially the part about the external monitor working fine, and pay the technician to fix it.
