Laptop question on bad screen..please help anyone

By kmathews1 ·
Hello TR Family I was wondering how i can hook my old laptop hp N5350 which the screen is bad and hook it up to my hp dv4000 so i can view my files and maybe transfer my files to my new computer or at lease be able to see what's on my bad laptop so i can burn files that i need
Basically i want to use my new laptop screen to see the old laptop which the scree is not working, must be the cable cause i can barely see the screen not enough to see my files. Any help would be great out here..I'm kinda new to this and would like some help from someone who knows what I'm trying to do,
Thanks for your time in this and hope to hear back from some kind soul...

use an external monitor

Sounds like your back light went out. You will have a heck of a time using another laptop without turning it into a serious project but you should be able to hook up any regular monitor to it using the external monitor port that most laptops (if not all) have.

Other options are using remote access if you can shine a light on the screen or something to allow yourself to set that up.

Need more info.
What OS does the bad laptop have? WinXP Pro? Vista? XP Home?
Do you have a home network? If you have WinXP Pro and a home network you can use remote desktop to get to your laptop that has the bad screen and then take care of everything.
