    Screen and keys broken, connected to tv but can't switch output bc function key is broken. Only way to switch I found is safe mode. But I want to be able to access the computer fully while switchin it to a tv for now. Help anybody? There's a command prompt but I'm unsure what to do there either..

    Use < Windows logo key > + p (after booting into Windows) and then <right arrow> and <Enter>.

    See "Display your way" in 20 essential PC shortcuts. "Projector" can be TV or any other external monitor.

    You should be able to use an external Usb keyboard. You might have to set it up to mimic the Function key though.

    EDIT : can't be more specific without knowing what laptop you have.
