I have a 2009 macbook that needs a new screen. I've replaced the monitor cable, but it still whites out. I can hook it up to a TV via HDMI and the display is fine, but it boots in extended monitor mode and since the screen on the computer is whited out I can't get to any of the applications or preferences to change the display to mirrored rather than extended. I've ordered a new (used) LCD display to put it in, but in the meantime is there anyway to force the laptop to boot using the external monitor as the primary screen so I can get to the applications? Or do I just wait for the new screen to show up?
