Lenovo g580 running Windows 8.1. It won't display anything on a VGA monitor or through the HDMI. I can't adjust any of the settings now, because I have no screen. I don't really have the cash to replace the screen right now, either

Hi,
I recently had a similar issue with a Sony laptop of my sisters, it turned out that the display wasn't getting the chance to work because the OS wasn't booting, it was attempting a scan on startup. Pressing escape a few times after startup allowed it to boot and the hdmi automatically mirrored the displays after that. Hope this helps
