Hi. I spilt liquid on my laptop so the screen isn't working anymore. So now I'm trying to use another laptop that hasn't been in use for a number of years but it has Windows XP professional installed. I need an update (getting your clock is ahead error msg etc.). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
Leave it connected to the internet and let Microsoft update run?
XP is very old and isn't supported any more.
Thanks. l've tried that but it didn't work. Just wondering now if I can connect the broken screen laptop hard drive to another screen?
XP has severe difficulty updating these days as the supercedence method is a mess and it can take a day or two to evaluate.
There are unofficial rollups - https://msfn.org/board/topic/171171-introducing-unofficial-windows-xp-sp4/
However, the system will be horribly insecure and there are no current browsers available either.
You can probably attach the dead screen laptop to a TV/monitor, if it is only the screen that's damaged.
I did try to connect the dead screen to a monitor earlier but it didn't work. Do you have any ideas of what cable connections are needed? Thanks
I'd imagine its more than a dead screen then.
You tell me...what display connections are on your broken laptop and on you monitor/TV?
The laptop is powering up as normal so it seems to be working but the screen doesn't work. I tried to connect HD to a monitor but honestly haven't a clue what cables are needed.
Result. Was able to connect laptop to monitor with these cables. Sorry but don't know what they're called but it might be a help to someone else. Thanks again for the replies
