Hi i forgot to mention that i was unsuccessful at duplicating to the TV screen so now i am left with a laptop that turns on but the screen is turned off and no other screens to try and fix it !!

Thank you for your answer though , Any more help would be appreciated

Ok...Maybe this will work:

Try booting in safe mode.

So shut down the laptop fully by holding the on/off button for a lengthy period of time. then turn it on again with a single press and hit and hold the F8 key to enter safe mode.

It will hopefully display things and let you enter the control panel to change the settings.
