I have a Sony vaio Model # vgn-fz345d. I have a few issues, the first my screen is cracked so I can only use with external monitor. The second issue is during the booting process after the start in safe or normal mod the computer stops. I have let it sit for over an hour and still nothing. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to force the computer to display on the external monitor befor log in screen? If so I can then use the windows disk to boot. As I type this the computer has started so same question but now i should be able to do this easier?
