Re: Broken laptop screen
Just plug the desktop monitor into the laptops video out port and then turn the laptop on.
Wait about 30 seconds after turning it on, then press the FN + F8 keys together. This could be different on yours though. Just look for the function key up on the top row that has the 2 monitor icons on it and press the FN + that key.
Make dure the monitor is turned on before you start the laptop.

Just type your computer make and model in the search followed by lcd hinges.
If the hinges are broken where the lcd screen connects to the base of the laptop then you will have to remove the screws from the bottom of the laptop and remove the strip that is at the top of the keyboard to get to them.
If the hinges on the side of the lcd frame is broken then you will have to remove the plastic strip that is around the lcd screen. Remove the plastic or rubber bumpers on the plastic strip then you will see screws to remove to remove the plastic strip. Then you will see hinges and screws on the side of the lcd screen that you can remove. Once you have them removed you can lean the lcd lid forward so that it drops in your hand. Don't let it drop on the keyboard, just into your hand and not too far because there is a cable on the back of the lcd that you don't want to damage. The cable can be taken loose from from the lcd at the back near the top if you like. Sometimes there might be a piece of tape securing it. If the lcd screen does not come out then there are screws on the 4 corners that is securing it and the hinges.
