    Hi Guys, hoping one of you can help with this.
    My girlfriends had a laptop for a couple of years and the screen backed up a while back which then lead to a seperate monitor but now it's given up completely.

    I'm trying to figure out a way i can access her laptop through my PC but taking into account i can't view/action anything from the laptop.
    Any ideas?!

    You have two or more girlfriends and they shared a laptop and the only thing broken is the screen? Amazing! :)

    If it was setup to allow Window's Remote Desktop or some similar third party remote access, you can use that. Otherwise, I think repairs or another laptop are called for.

    I would pull the hard drive out of the laptop and spend $15 on a USB HD enclosure!
