Second Monitor woes
I have a HP Pavilion g6 Notebook that I was given, but the screen is broken, it had win 8 on and I could use it with external monitor... So I decide to install Ubuntu 12.04 desktop on it using the external monitor.
The install went fine using the external monitor, and I could see everything fine, after it asks me to restart no display at all..
I have tried to get into bios but that would I assume only show on the laptop screen, also tried to connect with putty but wont let me in.

Re: Second Monitor wows
All laptops have a vga output key, usually F4, so you'll need to press Fn+F4, have you tried that? You might get your desktop back on the external monitor, and even if it is at a low resolution, you might then be able to set it up properly in your display preferences.

kostkon, Thank you for your answer, Unfortunately it didnt work, but with your answer it was easier for me to find a solution, it seems that mine was the windows key and "p" (strange using that key with Linux)
