I have an old laptop, whose screen and Keyboard are damaged. I wanted to connect it to an external monitor. I have HDMI cables and VGA cable I tried to connect by it won't. I removed its case. I found out that Switching on the laptop the small LED lights are glowing, Fan is spinning, and Could hear little vibrations from the hard drive, Through which I assume that it is working. It is a sony Vaio vpceb34en pretty much very old laptop, Which was kept aside for years. Please help whether I could still use it or not
Re attach the broken laptop screen, after that let laptop boot atleast 2-3min, then connect external monitor and hit windows+P key once or twice and press enter it should let to display, otherwise keep playing with it since you dont see anything.
