First option would be to plug in an external monitor and see if that works, if your PC uses a VGA connector then you can use that, and copy the data to an external drive/memory stick or whatever.

Next option would be to remove the harddrive (most newer laptops it's a very easy job, just one or two screws and it should slide out) then get a cheap harddrive dock like this: and copy the data that way. Note that if the laptop is more than 5 or 6 years old it may have a PATA drive so you will need a different sort of dock.
