Hi, I hope I got the right topic for this... So my laptop screen has been busted for about a year but it would still connect just fine to my tv or desktop monitor either with an HDMI or VGA.
Well the other day my laptop died and when I went to turn it back on it turned on (the screen still lights up, just no picture) but it wouldn't connect to my tv or monitor. When I move the mouse the Lazer lights up so I know the comp is running, it just won't connect.i tried shutting it off for a couple days,tried both VGA and HDMI and multiple screens and nothing. When I plug it into my desktop monitor the monitor connects to it but goes into sleep mode automatically and won't come out of it.
Any help is much appreciated, thanks for reading!

some computers have a function key to toggle between internal or external monitors....hold down the function key and press the appropriate F key.....most of the time i think its function+F8...but may be different on your computer
