Hi,

Do you see anything when you use the built in display of that laptop?
- Do a hard reset first, remove the battery and AC adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds then boot it up without the external monitor connected and see if it will load normally.
- Once it's loaded on to the desktop screen press the Windows key + P at the same time and select between Extended or Duplicate display then press Enter.

If the screen is broken and if you want to make the external display as the default monitor for the mean time, remove the ribbon cable that connects the built in display to the motherboard then you can connect the external monitor using HDMI connection and you would be able to use it even inside BIOS. :)

Hi, you don't need to unplug the cable for the screen to use an external monitor. When the laptop is off, push the power button and close the lid, the laptop should use the external monitor instead of the internal.

Last test you can try, remove the battery and adapter, hold the power button for 30 seconds, put back the adapter and try to boot. If it does boot, something on the motherboard is defective.
