It always helps if you state the laptop model so we can be more specific in our answers.
I would presume its a bios setting that you are trying to get at if you need to see the screens before windows starts.

It sounds as if the inverter for the screen is dead. This lights the screen up. If you shine a flashlight on the LCD can you make out the desktop screen. Look closely as its hard to make out. If this is the case then there may be some hope.

According to the bios manual the default setting is AUTO which will follow whatever setting is in XP,but that only happens after XP starts, which is essentially the problem. Have you tried to use the hotkey combination to change to the external monitor after getting in the bios to see if the external monitor will turn on.
During startup, press the F2 key
If that doesn't work,You would have to do it blind by knowing the keystrokes. I can see no other way to access the bios through an external monitor without changing this setting first.
Here is the bios manual explaining where all the settings are and how to move the curser from setting to setting. http://www.fujitsupc.com/www/content/pdf/SupportGuides/N3410_05FAL_BIOSGUIDE.PDF

I forgot to finish a line there. After-->During startup, press the F2 key , I meant to keep going with-->then press the hotkey combination to change to the external monitor. Hopefully the bios screen will come up.
