    I have an old Dell Inspirion laptop with a broken screen. I have irreplaceable files on it that I want to save. When I hook it to a monitor the monitor doesn't detect it and goes into sleep mode. It's too old to connect it to my tv via hdmi cord, and I don't have an s-video cord. Is there an app that I can use with my android tablet as a proxy via usb cord? If not, is there anything else I can do?

    sounds like the video card is broken, as the monitor does not work
    You wil l need someone to take the harddrive out and use it in a USB Caddy or connect to another PC to get the data off
