    Not quite. HDMI can be used to display a video signal, so you can hook up the broken laptop to a TV and use the TV as the screen. Then use a USB flash drive to copy off all the files you need.

    Alternatively, you can remove the harddrive from the broken laptop and hook it up to another computer as a secondary drive to copy everything over.
