HI

Yes you can do this. I think your LCD is damaged but not the main display so you can connect another display device through HDMI or VGA port and use the Fn+F8 to see the desktop on other display device.

OR

You can also set this by going display properties through control panel to set 2nd display device.

1. First of all you need to connect the monitor to your laptop with your HDMI cable (if your monitor doesn't support HDMI get a HDMI to VGA/DVI converter) you can buy it from here.

2. Turn your laptop on and then  close the lid of your laptop quickly. You will need an external keyboard and mouse for this to work as you know it.

3. Now the laptop will start with the externally connected monitor as it's the main display.
