You can get a converter to connect the laptop drive to any IDE controller in any other PC, just try to get all the data off that way, if it doesn't come off easely, try some of CrazyOnes tools (the list you can find here => http:Q_20778366.html)

You can also connect the drive to a monitor and another machine via USB, ethernet, parallel or serial port and move the data to the other machine b4 u put it on ebay.

One more thing to try: Maybe that laptop can be connected to another monitor. Try that and see if you can get anything on the screen. If it doesn't try a combination like FN+<some icon looking like a lcd screen>
If that doesn't work, go with my first suggestion.

I meant to connect the laptop to an external monitor, not the drive - thanks LucF
