    Purple Screen of Death??

    Recently, my laptop screen broke after dropping it, but I could still use it with my 1920x1080p monitor. But, today I tried to fullscreen my powerpoint presentation which had a 6000x4000p picture and the slides worked fine until i tried to close it. I was sent back to my empty desktop not able to click or open any program. I force quit my laptop and whenever i turn it on again all i see is a purple screen with only my mouse pointer on it. Its been like this for 30 min already. Thanks in advance.

    If your laptop still works (chance that it failed), there should be a button on the keyboard that switches screens. You should be able to hold the function key and tap the correct key at the top (usually side-by-side with a function key) to change which screen your laptop is using. This will switch it from laptop to monitor. Failing that, I would bet on it just being broke.

    Potentially, you could try turning it off, removing battery, replacing, plugging in, and try again.

    Better check HDD, it is most susceptible to jarring.
