I'm not exactly sure what you have removed here

As these fairly new Toshiba's don't have a CMOS Battery they use a Smart Socket to power the CMOS Chip.

It sounds as if you have switched the Display to the External Screen so look in the User Manual here for the way to switch it back to the Internal Screen should be a key combination which include the Function Key with the Icon of a Monitor on it.

Also try the options on Page 44 of this manual.
