Nerds help me.
Scenario is, I knocked my laptop off the table a long time ago and smashed the screen, can’t make out anything on it at all.
I have scavenged a monitor from someone thinking that maybe I can hook it up and run off that for the time being as I have uni stuff due in 2 days, also because the screen I broke was already a replacement one which didn’t actually fit properly so I modified the case to make it work.
Laptop has an Hdmi port, If I plug the monitor in there and disconnect the broken screen will the laptop recognize the monitor as its primary display and work? I’ve got no way of telling it to do so with the current screen as wrecked as it is.
I was given a desktop pc along with aforementioned screen. The pc has no hard drive, is there anyway of taking the hard drive from my laptop and running it in the new pc without having to do a windows boot? I’m happy to start over again but can’t make a boot drive very easily as the only pc I have access to now to download it is in work, where I can’t download it because I don’t have admin permissions.
I hate computers.
