Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but my girlfriend recently gave me her old laptop that had a shattered screen for me to connect to my tv and just use for watching Hulu while playing a game or doing homework. I connected the laptop, and it would seem that someone who tried to help her fix it before I did tried to put it into BIOS with an external monitor hooked up for some reason (this is just conjecture of course, as I can only see flashing blue and the word 'option' in white text whenever I start the computer up). It loads up in BIOS whenever I turn it on, and I can't see the screen to figure out how to get out of it- anything I can do?

Laptop has Windows 10 and is an ASUS X551MA

Have you tried connecting it to the TV yet ? You might get a display if you do.

One of the F keys may switch between the laptop screen and an external one, I think it's F8 for that laptop, you may have to hold down the function key Fn while you press it.

Try connecting a computer monitor if you can.Try the above when connected to the TV as well.

Don't have a monitor to connect and tried t with the tv. I think it's just the F8 button that is supposed to switch between, but that doesn't work either.
