  1. Do you have access to another computer? If yes, you can remove the hard drive, place it in an external drive enclosure and connect it to the computer and retrieve your files.
  2. Monababa:

    You can replace the screen yourself. It's a very easy process that takes only about 15 - 20 minutes. There are many places you can get a replacement screen; I have used a company called Screen Tek; their prices are very reasonable and I think they must have a replacement screen for every model of laptop, including HP.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi :)

    There is some not very good advice here about replacing the screen :(

    DO NOT replace the screen yet as it CANNOT be just that as it SHOULD still work on an external and you say it wont...

    Laptop repair shop for diagnosis... when you dropped it you MAY have broken the motherboard.... which would make changing the screen totally pointless...

    All the best Brett :)
