    If you had prepared for the linking of the Kindle Fire tablet to your laptop, might have been done.  iDisplay, Splashtop, Duet and several other programs for Android 4.0 and above tablets can run the client, link to the server version on laptop by wireless, show the screen.

    Another computer through UltraVNC, TeamViewer and other remote controlling software could show your laptop's desktop images on that other computer if on a network. But with no way to install now, probably be too hard to set it up.

    Windows 10 does have a way to project your laptop screen by wireless to another device like a smart TV.  Read about that on the Internet.  Might be able to set that up with just a keyboard and no working screen.  https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/turn-windows-10... is one of many explanations.

    Some TV brands like Samsung, or ones with Roku built in will work.  If you don't have a TV like that, you can buy a Miracast compatible device like EasyCast to plug into your TVs USB port.

    When others say not possible, they are concentrating on the "after the fact" of your laptop's screen failure.  Might be able to fake the setup by poking blindly.

    You seem to say you have a second screen, but it's not showing anything when you hook it to the Laptop.  I think this is standard and the laptop won't throw the screen to this external monitor until you press a special key combo.  Look at the keyboard and find the Fn key.  It's most likely labeled with BLUE letters.  Now, look at the Function keys across the top of the keyboard.  One of them will have a small 'screen' on it, usually F4 or F5.  By Pressing and holding the Fn Key and tapping the Function key with the screen on it, you toggle through a set of 3 screen options.  these are Laptop Screen Only, Laptop AND External Screen , External Screen Only.  Turn on the External screen and turn on the laptop. Then use the key combo to view the screen on the external and see if this takes care of your issue.  A lot less problems than using a Kindle as a screen.

    You'll need to do some hacking to make it work. Here's a link with instructions:
