The Problem:
For the past 4 years I've been using an Extensa 5620 with Windows Vista. :)
Nearly 2 years ago the display screen broke. :(
I began using the external VGA port to replace the screen. :D
Recently I got a virus which destryed my restore points and forced my computer to blue screen no matter how it booted. :mad:
As a last resort, I did a factory reset using the alt+10 boot option. (n)
I forgot that the external VGA port is not active until the computer is completely installed. :eek:
My VGA is only active until the install screens reappear or if I boot into safe mode. :(
If I boot into safe mode it won't let me continue until I finish the installation.:eek:

I need to be able to continue installation from safe mode, activate my external VGA port during installation, or have a screen by screen guide that will let me install without the video active then activate my video after install is complete. :confused:
Any other solutions would be nice as well.:cool:

I have a working screen, the external screen (removed from a dead desktop which the lap top repaced).
I don't need two screens.
I'm happy enough to work with the one and I'd rather not spend the money for a 2nd. Also the parts necessary in holing the screen to the laptop were damaged when removed.
