External monitor for XPP

By itovar133 ·
I have a laptop with a broken screen and it has XPP on it. Is there anyway I can set up an external monitor with out seeing the screen on the laptop? Also this is a older laptop and the Fn + F5 doesn't work.

What do you mean by and the Fn + F5 doesn't work

That the Keyboard isn't working correctly or that the Key Combination used on some new NB doesn't work with this one?

All you need do is plug in an external monitor and use what this NB has to switch the Screen Displays though you should only see the External Screen with Windows running and not as the system boots up which could produce problems when things go wrong.

But if the computer has a Hardware Switch instead of a Software Switch to switch the Default Monitor there will not be a problem.
