question about laptop with broken screen and blackscreen

i have a laptop i've been unable to fix as i couldnt afford to fix the screen to have easier access to fix the problem at hand. the screen has been broke since about 92 days after purchase(i may thank my brother for that). i had used an external monitor for quite some time and it worked fine but one day i'm not sure why but i started it and if loaded all the way up but the problem my cursors there on a black screen and thats that. with no way to see the boot i cant attempt to do anything to fix it so i've just had to leave it sitting in its case. while i'm on here trying to fix a serious issue with the only current working computer i thought i'd try asking you guys your thoughts.
i feel like if i could atleast see i could do the onboard recovery partition and fix the problem but without a new screen itself i'm not sure how to get it to recognise an external monitor on boot. and cant find a "blind mans instructions" to go through recovery with just the keyboard and no sight.
