I have an issue concerning my Windows 8 Acer Laptop that I’m trying to connect to an external monitor.
What initially happened was that I dropped my laptop and cracked the screen therefore
the display on the laptop is completely wasted. I therefore used my TV as an external
monitor. It was working great however I wanted to only show on my TV and wanted to
blank my laptop out at all time (I am aware you can just press Fn + F6 however I was looking
for something more long term). I went into the "display properties" and then there was
an option that I chose which was "only show on second screen" or something like that
What happened was the resolution went extra small so I tried
resetting my computer and then what happened is that it loads up to a blue screen where
I can move a cursor now but nothing else. I can't do anything, type anything, it's
just a blue screen with a cursor which I can move around.
Does anybody have any solutions to this problem? Is there a way i can change resolutions
manually? I've resetted my computer several times however it only just goes to that
blue screen now with the cursor. I still see the screen saver at the beginning though.
