Are you sure the desktop's monitor (LCD or CRT) isn't at fault (or perhaps the video card/chip)? Connecting a desktop to a laptop to view files would likely require connection through a network, and if you haven't already set both machines up with permissions to share files, then---without a display on the desktop---that would be nearly impossible to do...

✔ Best Answer
You could get an external drive case (or something like ) to connect your hard drive directly to your laptop.
