Gateway laptop to normal monitor HELP!

  The Dazza 21:37 04 Jan 2009

Ok, so I stood on my girlfriends laptop over christmas and have knackered the screen. The thing is I have 3 files on it I need before it is sent off for repair. I thought by just plugging a normal monitor into it that would work and it does up to the windows splash screen. Then the windows splash screen disappears and though you can see the laptop normally boot up on the external monitor it just goes blank and I can not see anything. Can anyone please help me get my files back? Cheers.

Try pressing the blue fn key and F4 at the same time.
