Use an external monitor.

DO NOT plug in or unplug a monitor's video cable into / from a video port while the computer is running. Doing so can damage the monitor's circuits and/or the video adapter's circuits.

Some laptops will display on an external monitor without you having to do anything.

If you get no video on an external monitor, some laptops have a key combo that you must press to toggle the display to external video only / built in display video only / sometimes both - see the Owner's or User's manual for the model.

or if all else fails you can remove the battery, unplug the unit and remove the hard-drive. Plug it into another system and retrieve the data off it, or take it to a tech who can do that for you.
