Long story made short, I have a Windows 7 HP Dv6 laptop that has a completely useless LCD screen. I need to be able access the narrator (which reads on screen text) from the 'Users' screen.
This laptop has two users, so I need to be able to know which one is highlighted in order to login. The narrator will also help in connecting an external display, which is apparently impossible from the login screen, as I have tried many times.
Basically I am looking for the specific combination of keys that will turn the narrator on from the 'Users' screen.
when you connect the external display, hit f8. it should automatically switch to the external display. though it may take several attempts, if it is cycling thorugh different screen options.
The display key is F4, but even so, it doesn't seem to change the display settings until you log into the desktop, which I can't do right now.
I dunno, maybe my HDMI port is broken too, but I doubt it.
Pull the hard drive out of the old laptop (depends on the exact model, but unless it's a really thin ultrabook it's usually just a couple of screws) and connect it to your new laptop. Should mount like any external HDD. If not, you may need to try to boot from it or use a Linux USB stick
