Specs: Windows XP, Intel Celeron 1.5 GHZ, 512MB RAM

On my Toshiba laptop, I accidentally changed my monitor to 'external' so cannot see anything on screen. I plugged in external monitor and it said wrong frequency, I can't see anything on my built in LCD, tried the FN shortcuts and nothing. Anybody know what to do?
