    Help rebooting without monitor


    I need help doing a factory reset on my laptop, the screen is broke and I've got it connected to a monitor, however when I initialise the factory reset, the monitor goes black and I can't go any further. Any help on this matter is greatly appreciated.

    Did you try closing the laptop in order to disable the laptop display. The recover program does not have drivers for the external display you may be out of luck.

    Try pressing the fn+F4 or fn+F8 keys to switch to the external monitor. (Or fn+which ever function key that shows rectangles (monitor) on it.) You may have to tap the F4 or F8 key a couple of times to switch to the external monitor.

    Also post the type of laptop you have for more possible help.
