try plugging it into a moniter as he says. if that doesn't work see if theres any reset pinholes anywhere on the laptop. If that's no good, Press the function key to switch displays..
because of propriritary Laptops are very hard to troubleshoot.. If you take them apart you may have hell getting it back together without pinching cables etc..
May be best to take it back to where you got it/the manufacturer
you can generally pull out the hard drives and get a 2.5 hard drive adapter hopefully it's not the hard drive thats bad but .. I don't know how laptops work that well off hand..
get something like this and pull out the drive and use with your other comp to pull the data.
