Hey, so I have began reinstalling Windows 8 with laptop and broken screen. Anyone knows if I can boot on different monitor, or a way I can just use the keyboard to complete the reinstalling without seing anything?

Would love some help here guys!

yes should work off external monitor or TV although may go blank for a while when loading graphics drivers.

But how do I Connect it? At the moment I dont hear the pc working. When I input random stuff on the keyboard, it eventually comes adress turning the computer off.

I don't think you can do it. Win+P gives the choice on main screen same as F4 on some machines. If you've started booting from a DVD, USB then you are automatically on the default. Same as if you booted to IEFI.

Try the Windows key again, tap P, wait a second, keeping the Win key depressed all the time, tap P again, and wait a few seconds. Try again. It just might cycle through and process the options.
