    My screen is completely black. The screen itself is what is not working all other components are working properly. I hooked my TV up to the CPU to,use as a monitor until I can buy a new screen. However the CPU is recognizing the broken screen as the primary and I am unable to switch primary to the TV when the CPU boots. Is there anyway for me to do this?

    I believe you can switch to an external monitor by pressing FN and F2 or F4.

    Still should work. AIO's usually have vid output to an external source.

    Tried that. It didn't work. Is there a way to disable the screen? So,when it boots it recognizes TV as primary?
