connected my Hp laptop with a broken screen to my desktop monitor with VGA cable, recieved no signal and shut off. have had this Laptop connected with VGA cable to flat screen Tv about a year ago and it worked fine. is this a graphic card error or something more simple?

Did you give primary status for external monitor ? If yes, close the lid should do.
I have to do this everyday because few of my laptops use USB "docking" stations and I have to
(a) open laptops,
(b) turn them ON,
(c) enter PIN for encrypted HDD's/SSD's then
(d) close them.
They will start Windows from external monitors.
Have you tried to hit F4 ?
