    Need to stop booting into safemode - without laptop screen


    O.K. Sorry if this is in the wrong section admins, please feel free to move it.

    Here's my problem....

    I have a Lenovo P580 laptop. The screen wire got shorted out, so I just always connected it to a TV and never really had a problem. I recently upgraded to Windows 10 from 8.1. After getting that issue with the start menu and cortana not working, I tried the make another profile, etc stuff from the internet. I changed my laptop to always load into safe mode using command prompt... NOW, every time it loads up, it loads into safe mode... only problem is I can't see it or do anything because the output for my tv doesn't work.

    So... I bought a new wire for the laptop screen... nothing. Bought a new screen... nothing. So I assume the motherboard is damaged... The HDMI and VGA ports worked up till I set it to boot into safe mode...

    Is there anything I can do? short of replacing the motherboard?

    Thanks in advance... this is killing me.

    Boot the computer using the Windows 7/8/10 installation disc or USB flash drive.
    On the first screen, press SHIFT+F10 to bring up the command prompt.
    Run the following command.

    bcdedit /deletevalue {default} safeboot

    Restart the computer.

    The problem is I can't see anything... no laptop screen and no outputs to see on the tv and I don't have a boot disk, it's all in the laptop

    Is it possible the key combination of Fn and one of the Fx keys got inadvertently pressed? That combination toggles between the LCD Panel, the external monitor/projector port or both at the same time.

    I believe I tried that as well. I set the safemode to start with nothing else I believe... I'd have to find the stupid youtube video I was trying to follow... I'll look for it. The laptop was over by the tv when it reset. TV Screen went dark and never came back on

    Does the fn keys even work in safe mode??? For all I know it's on a log in screen, and I can't see it.

    O.K... I just plugged in VGA, HDMI and the new laptop screen I bought. Hitting FN +F3 (to change between screens) did nothing at all.

    On mine it's a hardware thing, not dependent upon the OS.

    What other options are there??? I'm not the most computer suave guy but I can take things apart and put them back together like a mofo. lol

    "Novo button. When the computer is off, press this button to start the Lenovo Recovery system or the BIOS setup utility, or to enter the boot menu."

    When you start laptop using Novo button can you see boot menu?

    If yes, then create bootable Windows 10 USB flash drive.
