Hi,

My sisters son completely smashed the screen on her Packard Bell EasyNote TE. I took out the hard drive and put it in an external display so she still has all her data, she said I can keep the laptop for parts. The display is destroyed but everything else appears to be fine. Only the top left corner shows anything, before I swapped the hard drives it showed part of what looks like the typical screen you see if windows is screwed and needs to be repaired or reinstalled. Now that Ive swapped drive the display lights up but I cant make anything out.

Ive tried connecting it to an old VGA display (it has VGA out) but it wont use it on boot/post. Ive tried pressing F2, F8, fn + f8 on boot but nothing happens, any ideas how I can get it to detect the external display ?.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Thanks, but the hinges on the display are broke, I don't think it can tell if the lid is closed.
