Default Busted screen on netbook - VGA possible?

I got a friend who broke the screen on an Acer netbook. It has Win XP so when we plug in a monitor through VGA port it will display it until the welcome screen, at which point it sends signal only to the busted screen. We tried Fn+F5 but nothing happens.

Only way is boot in safe mode, but it can't run programs. Any tips?

Samsung QX410 notebook <-- lol, I'm always on the go these days :(

is there a screen output option in the bios? what video chipset? can you boot in safe mode and change the graphics options to output to the other screen?
