Now, I am working blind, I know there is a sequels of keys to press when computer starts up in order to return to normal mode. I just don't know what keys. Help.......please

What is the make and model of your laptop.  Generally switching the display between the built-in screen, an external monitor, or both is achieved via a function key at the top row.  It generally toggles from only laptop to only external monitor, to both, and then back again to only laptop again (lather, rinse, repeat).

 

Which function key this is varies by machine though there's generally an icon it that looks like a monitor (either literally or somewhat stylized - the one on mine looks like a tiny TV screen with a small bar on either side.

See the mouse pad and keyboard manual for your computer, here.   In the "Using Hotkeys" section it shows fn+f4 is the key sequence to switch your screen image between the built-in monitor, an external monitor, and back again.

 

It's worth a shot trying this if your machine boots up.  It could be toggled to only display on the external monitor (which doesn't exist).  Hold down fn at the lower left side of your keyboard and press f4 several times to see if you get your display back.
