running MacBook without attached display
If I follow all the steps under the step-by-step guide for replacing the entire display and then put the laptop back together without a new display would it still function entirely (disk drive, wifi, bluetooth) with an external display through the mini-dvi port?
My MacBook runs fine in clamshell mode but the display that's attached to the macbook does not work after water damage. I would like to remove the attached display and have access to the keyboard and trackpad while being attached to an external display.
Is this a good question?
