Connecting Laptop To screen help

hi, my laptop screen has recently died (connection problems) however the main computer is still perfectly usable. hopefully i will soon buy a new laptop but in the meantime i was wondering if there is any way of connecting my laptop to a tv or other computer in order to save my files to a disk or device. i have tried to connect it to a projector but the connections apear to be different and it will not work. the only connection that seems suitable is a white colored one with D V H or D V I-I above. not bieng particualy good at the technical side of computers i have no idea if it would work. it has 3 rows of 8 small squares and to the right a + shape with 4 squares around it. sorry for the need of a description. any help would be great, Thanks

a make/model of laptop might be a good start

Sure its not a GT

your description sounds like a DVI output
the G does not have the DVI output

Im fairly shure it dosnt say GT. Al it says on the lable is Model: MIT-SABLE-G
I have looked on the internet and there are 2 types of the DVI connections and i have the DVI-I and not the DVI-D
