Hi guys, does anyone know how to recover data from a laptop with a bung screen? I don't have the dreaded black screen, mine flickers a little on start up and I hear and see the windows logo pop briefly, after that it flickers a bit more but then the screen goes dark green. I think it is probably ready for me to log in but because I can't see the screen I can't click on anything or can't see where to type. I just want to recover some data from it, does anyone know how I could do this? Is there anyway I could plug another screen in to it?

Remove HDD and slave to another computer. If it has port for a separate screen try one

Don't I need a special adapter or something to connect to the HDD to do that? It's an older computer too which probably isn't going to help.

If it is not Serial ATA, you would need a 2.5" IDE cable which converts to normal 3.5" IDE or you could get a USB enclosure for it.

I wonder if it might be the graphics card on the way out?
