    BACKGROUND: My macbook pro is ALLLL kinds of ****ed up (15" 2011 edition). But it's my baby. Even though she has some.. challenges I still love her. The screen is cracked. I need to replace it but I'm super lazy. I'm the type of person who needs to be forced into fixing ****. If I can do a workaround and I dont need to take apart all the screws, awesome. Anyways, yeah its cracked and you cant see anything on the laptop screen. So I plug it into TV's via hdmi as the workaround. Also, something is ****ed up with the keyboard and everytime I touch any of the keys the trackpad (or external mouse) only right clicks mobo maybe? My workaround was a wireless mac keyboard.

    THE PROBLEM: Whenever I plug my laptop into a TV it recognizes it, but only extends the screen. I usually just hit command+F1 on the wireless keyboard and presto! the screen is duplicated. So I'm in Germany and the ******* I am forgot the keyboard on my kitchen bar. I borrowed a windows keyboard from the reception desk at the hotel im staying at but the f1 keys doesn't duplicate the screen.

    halp.

    I can't quite make out what you are asking us to help with?

    Also, if you want sufficient help I would use less provocative language and announce your problem in a more organized fashion. Have you gone into display preferences to try and resolve your issue there?

    I think they are asking for a keyboard shortcut on a windows keyboard to mirror the display.

    Sorry, I'm way to ****ed up to understand what's happening in this thread.
