"display on my external monitor"
If that is an USB connection, try a different port.

Presumably you know the key combination to switch the display to external? When you power up the laptop do you wait a reasonable time before trying that key combination? Remember there will be three options you step through; external only, internal and external; and of course internal (only).

What make/model laptop do you have?

These links discuss a similar situation to yours; and offer a few ideas too...

A second display will not work UNTIL you are booted into Windows. Will not work in the POST screens. Does the laptop (not Labtop) show any indication it is booting at all? Fans running, for instance?

Try testing your external monitor on a different computer to verify it works.

How did the laptop screen get broken? If you dropped the laptop you may have damaged other hardware.

I don't understand. Are you saying that it is normal for his specific laptop
model to not begin sending a video signal to an external monitor until
Windows has started running? My very old Dell laptop sends a signal to
an external monitor as soon as I power it on.

That is my understanding from other posts here. Perhaps it depends on the graphics chip? Guess I could be wrong. Don't mess with laptops that much and don't use an external display on mine. Don't really see the sense to it, but that is just me.
