Hi, I've searched for this but my query covers a few themes and I can't find anything that covers them all... apologies if it's come up before. Need some help. My Macbook 2007, Core 2 Duo, A118 took a catastrophic tumble. There's a breathtaking gash on the top, middle of the plastic lid and the screen looks as though it's gunshot. Machine was on and asleep at time of accident. I can see a corner of the blue, wake-from-sleep-enter-password screen but I can't enter name or password, the text boxes are obscured/mouse vanishes as it enters the ravaged section of screen wilderness. Obviously, I'd like to get my data off the macbook and know that I should be able to migrate it off the hard drive if I dismantle the machine but is there an easier/cheaper option to achieve this? Could I hook the macbook to an external monitor/computer/network and then use an external keyboard and mouse to wake it up, enter my name/password, extract my files and send/email/burn them to a new mac? Is there any other way I can access the macbook by linking it to a macbook pro somehow? I imagine that I might be sunk given I can't get to the system prefs but would be grateful for any thoughts. And p.s. if anyone in the UK has sourced and replaced a screen, what do you think the cash difference would be between that and the migration cost. Local shop is quoting sixty smackers an hour for opening it up. Cheers.
