HELP! Can't change see laptop screen to install Windows!

PLEASE HELP! I'm trying to install Windows 7 with my laptop that has a broken screen, (i can see only about 35% of the screen.) and a ruined keyboard. I do not want to spend about $80 for a new screen nor keyboard. (I have an external mouse and keyboard that work fine though) My most general problem though is that i have UBUNTU installed. My moniter picks up the screen fine though it's just that it DOES NOT pick up the freakin' BIOS! Sad

(For some reason it also does not pick up the Windows setup either. I have already tried using FN+F4 to see if that works, but the thing is, my grandma spilled Diet Coke all over the keyboard so if you type "B" it types: bt5f4 So i'm pretty sure when I press FN+F4 it types something like: FNebu2F43j48 so they are not right next to each other, get it? Any help is appreciated! Grin

The usual fix is

To repair the machine. Try ebay and keep a tight leash on the budget.
