Plug in the desktop monitor to the laptop and turn the laptop. if nothing comes up, go to desplay settings.
the best way to fix a laptop if the screen is broken is to plug in an external monitor into a vga dvi or hdmi port that is on your laptop this depends on your external monitor.
If the IBM laptop you use has a VGA port you just connect your monitor cable directly to the port. Then turn on the laptop and it should install the drivers needed to use the external monitor automatically. If you laptop does not have a VGA port then you will need a "Laptop replica port" to add the VGA port so you can connect the monitor.
buy a new laptop! Its broken! (preferably Alienware)
yes it is 100% possible you just need to dissemble the screen and remove it carefully and all the casing then you just plug in the external monitor the turn the laptop on and press hold Fn the press F8 until the image shows on the screen that the normal shortcut on a laptop.
it would help if you made sense
Function key F5 switches the display from the main monitor - to an external one. For example - you may need to display the screen from a lap-top on a much larger monitor. You would plug the monitor into one of the expansion ports on the laptop - then press Fn F5 to turn off the built-in display, and re-direct the output to the external monitor.
if they flicker then most likely another turn sigal on the same side is bad or the bulb is blown
The monitor screen is completely autonomous to the computer itself. If you're using a desktop computer and not a laptop, it's perfectly fine to turn off the monitor and leave the computer running. You cannot, however, shut the lid, sleep, hibernate, or do anything to a laptop an keep the downloads runnings. You can turn down the brightness on your laptop if you wish, but you can't shut it off entirely.
yes because there would be a button on the left or right of your laptop and it would have a button and press it then there you go
it depends on what kind of monitor
If it isn't going into "sleep" mode (in which case just move your mouse), you may have a bad capacitor or diode in the monitor.
