I have an Apple Powerbook G4, and my monitor doesn't function. I have an external display Monitor, however it's stuck in extended screen mode. How do I get it to mirror or duplicate the display without use of the on-board?

Using PowerBook,  Displays
As i had said, I have an Apple Powerbook G4, and my monitor doesn't function. I have an external display Monitor, however it's stuck in extended screen mode. How do I get it to mirror or duplicate the display without use of the on-board? Is there a Fn key combo i'm missing or is the issue more serious then i realize? any and all help and hints would be greatly apprichiated, thanks in advance.

Okay so i figuered it out, it was the F1 and F2 keys for mirror displayed and extended. At the moment i can't recall which was which, but that was that.

The PowerBooks have an F-key that toggles mirrored and extended mode. My PB is loaned out right now but I think it was f7. The keycap has an icon on two overlapping rectangles, as I recall.
EDIT: Yes! Found a pdf of the PB manual it shows F7 is the toggle:

Perhaps this neat trick will work with your Powerbook.

Hello,
Click the Apple logo and then go to 'System Preferences'. Click 'Displays'
Unclick the little box which says 'Mirror Displays'
