Can't use secondary monitor

Specs: Windows Vista Home Premium, 2gb RAM
Hey guys, I'm gonna keep this short and to the point.

1.Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop; broken main screen, relying on secondary monitor
2.Change boot mode to diagnostic boot due to suspicion of a virus
3.Restart laptop
4.Laptop no longer sending video to my secondary monitor
5.I have cycled through fn+f8 many times, that does not fix it

How can I change the boot mode to normal without being able to see what I'm doing?

Unfortunately your external monitor output does not work until windows is loaded and drivers are loaded. Check with Dell but I am pretty sure you can only do this if/when you replace the main monitor.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
