  • I broke my laptop's screen and have been using my laptop with my TV via hdmi.
  • I needed to boot in safe mode so decided I'd go to msconfig and set it to boot in safe mode.
  • UNFORTUNATELY (I just discovered) my laptop doesn't send a signal to external monitors while in safe mode so now I'm completely blind and unable to use my laptop.
I was wondering if there was someone with a functional computer who could set it up as mine is, and tell me EXACT keystrokes to disable safe mode once enabled, including all dialogue boxes and timers. Then how to apply these settings and navigate back to the start menu and restart.

I've tried tapping the F8 function key as soon as I started reboot and powering up the laptop. Unfortunately the boot option menu did not show on the external display.

ANY help/advice would be immensely appreciated

The easiest solution is to replace the laptop's screen. You might be able to do it yourself, post the full make and model details of your laptop and we can investigate that.
