My primary lcd is broken, works only external monitor in windows mode...
Question: how i can access external monitor on dos/bios mode? Now blank screen only. Works under windows driver only.
Thanks for all...

Press Fn + F7 to switch to external monitor. (Keys may be different on your model,
should be a Fn combo key with two small monitor icons).
Enter BIOS on boot up, (F1?) and change Display Power On
setting to Auto.

Does it seem to enter BIOS? No further activity?
If Power On Display is set to LCD only, you may be stuck.
Normal solution would be to replace LCD, so mabye switching
with a bad LCD is not possible.
We could try it "blind", I could give you the keystrokes, arrow keys etc. to make the change,
but since I have a N100, I do not know if the same input would have the same results!
