Shut down, add an external monitor and reboot.

You should be able to interchange between the laptop screen, although broken, and the external monitor by pressing Fn and F4 at the same time.

This is of course dependant on whether the integrated graphics chip is working.

First turn off your notebook, then connect your external screen and then start your notebook

If you are having trouble viewing the external monitor, click f4 (or the key with a screen symbol ) to switch the screen image among display devices connected to the system.

Hope that helps
