I am trying to restore an hp 2000-363NR notebook but I also have only 1/4 of my monitor viewable due to damage. The restore needs to be done on the main monitor because in that mode my external monitor doesn't display anything (unless Windows is booted). I need help badly.

Get a friend who has done multiple installs of the OS you are using, he might be able to blindly navigate the install enough to get the comp to boot and switch to an external monitor.
