Broken lcd laptop - Need to perform system restore to sell Tags: Laptops LCD System Restore Last response: June 16, 2011 2:12 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share king98027 June 15, 2011 9:45:39 PM I have a Sony Vaio VGN-Z540. LCD is broken. Trying to do a system restore so I can sell it. I have an external monitor, but it won't register until in Windows. Any idea of how to accomplish this? Fn+F8 does not work. Nor does keeping laptop closed and powering on (cannot power on like this).
