OK, I see the problem. The only thing I can think of is to try to do it blind. If you leave the cursor over the menubar icon and click after plugging in monitor, you would bring up the menu, even tho' the display is scrambled. If you click around a bit just below there you may get lucky. Practise a few times to see what sort of move you need to make before connecting the monitor.
Edit: Attaching a mouse would allow you to make a guide on your desk to move the mouse so the cursor is on the second box in the dropdown menu, which would be "turn mirroring off" after connecting the monitor./Edit
This assumes the OS is all operating normally other than the display. Long shot, I know but you sound ready to try anything.
A link to another thread, don't know which ones you might have seen.

I'm trying to connect my 10v to my lcd tv via VGA-HDMI cable. The screen stays black after connected and using MirrorDisplays doesn't do anything for me. My hackintosh doesn't seem to even detect the display even though that's supposed to automatic. Any suggestions? Sounds works find via mini stereo-RCA (white and red only) cables.

Mirroring and vga out - 06-23-2010, 03:00 PM
I have a Dell Mini 9 am running 10.6.3 and have netbook installer 0.8.4.1. I too have downloaded the Fabian Canas mirroring application and also the terminal command program. Well, I was able to turn mirroring off and had the problem of when I connected the external monitor I would get a grey screen and my computer would freeze. I was able to hit upon a fix that works every time.
Hit the Apple key plus the Function and One keys. My screen goes black, I plug in my external monitor, and then hit the power button- Voila I have my main screen and the external extended screen. This has taken me about one week to fix.
Hope this can help someone else.
