I have an ACER that the screen won't work on...i can get a picture temporarily and then it goes away. I would just like to transfer my files from that laptop to another. What is the best way?

If you have a desktop and a spare SATA cable you can just pull the hard drive out and plug it into the desktop and copy the files. You could also invest in a SATA to USB adapter. Those are fairly cheap and work well.

Additionally. you could hook the laptop up to a TV via HDMI and use the TV as an external monitor.

Hope that helps.
