If you have a friend with a conventional PC monitor, take it there and connect it to that screen. It should display properly albeit with a black screen instead of your normal Desktop.

Press the Windows key and R together then in the Run box, type
then press Enter. Under the BOOT.INI tab, remove the tick from the /SAFEBOOT box. Click Apply then OK your way out and restart the machine.

If you can see your familiar Desktop, take it home and check it works on your TV screen.

I have a laptop screen that is broken and I have recently went into safe mode because of all the malware on it. I waited an entire day for it to load on the external monitor but nothing came up so I shut down the computer manually by holding the power button. I turned it on and I waited for a good 30 minutes for everything to load and nothing came up on the external monitor.

I am using a Dell inspirion.
I use a HP monitor as an external source.
I use a HDMI via VGA cable.

I really need help with this. Please help me..

When you connect a laptop to an external monitor, you need to press one of theFunction keys - one of the two with a monitor icon on them. One switches display to the external and the other brings it back.

It's just possiblke something was going on all that time but you couldn't see so try that and see what shows up on the screen.
