hi all this is my first post so not sure if this is in the right place but if it isnt i apoligise in advance.

the problem is that i have an external monitor connected to my laptop as i accidental cracked the screen by standing on it therefore i can now no only see about a quarter of the rest of the screen on my laptop the rest just flickers. .

any way ive been using the monitor for a couple of days now and it was going ok untill my laptop started trying to show what was being displayed on the monitor after i had already told the laptop to just use the external monitor so i tried to set it again and i for got how i did it as the menu just appeard the first time it happend so i tried changing a few things and now i cant see anything on the external monitor either because the screen resolution is so big and when i try to change it back the personalize menu appers on the laptop screen so therefore i cannot change it back as i can only see about a quarter of my laptop screen.

so i would like to know how resolve this problem by the way please no replys saying just send your laptop away as that's not feasible at the moment as the sooner i get this fixed the better as i need my laptop for college work.

so any help would be good.

thanks in advance
