I broke my laptop's screen been using my computer with my TV via hdmi. Needed to boot in safe mode and decided I'd go to msconfig and set it to boot in safe mode til I was done. Problem is, my computer doesn't send signal to external monitors while in safe mode and now I'm stuck unable to use my computer. 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 two separate ways I've found and neither did the trick. At a loss here

May I suggest two alternate ways you maybe able to recover from your situation?

1) Does your laptop have a video mode function key that lets you cycle between the internal and external display?If so, it may still work in safe mode.

2) Start tapping the F8 function key as soon as you reboot or power up the laptop. You should get a boot option menu that may show on the external display.
