Broken Laptop Screen

By cris_toves2002 ·
My house was broken into last week and the thieves smashed my laptop screen. I was just wondering how I could retreive my files when i can't even see what's goin' on because the screen is broken. The laptop turns on just fine though. No other damages besides the screen. Any help would be appreciated. THANKS GUYS!

a couple of options

you can get kit to load your hard drive in to a desktop pc, but the easiest way would be to just borrow a monitor and plug it in the back.
Any standard monitor will do even someones old 14 inch crt.

Do yourself a favor and disconnect the on-board lap-top display, no sense in taking chances on shorts. (any where)

Go to and get a new LCD

I have a HP pavillion dv2000 and I experienced the same problem, You need to take the screen out and look at the make and model no. to be sure of getting the right screen, and also contact online sellers to get a quote, seem to have the lowest prices.
Or you might be able to file a valid claim on your home contents insurance.
