I think you must have damaged some other component in your laptop.
There isn't much else we can do with our support system there at FixYa given the nature of your broken laptop, of which the screen is one element.
Use this link to ultimately connect wtih a tech at HP.com and see what they can offer you in the way of support.
Its too bad this happened to you but accidents happen. A new screen (an expensive part) will not fix your laptop, as the external monitor, which normally is automatically sensed by the laptop and 'mirrors' you laptops screen automatically, and in the last resort, you can try the key combos on the keyboard. Since, neither of these is working for you contact HP using the link above to begin resolving your problem.
About all we can tell you here is that your laptop is dead.
Sorry we can't fix your problem, but we go way beyond 'Trying', and I would hope you're re rating the solution would reflect that. Still, the choice is yours. Sorry, again for the bad news

I would back mothmans answer 100% but might suggest you re-assemble the display to the laptop if you continue to have problems getting an external display going.

OK, you have to hit the FN (Function Key) + the F4 key to get the image to display on the TV. Press and hold the FN key then hit the F4 key and the image should appear on the tv if you have a VGA cable connected to the TV and to the HP Netbook.
Once you see your desktop on the tv you can get your files off my purchasing a USB Flash Drive of at least 8GB or 16GB (Just depends on how big your My Documents folde is). Then put the usb flash drive in the usb port and copy whatever files you want. Most of the things you want will probably be your documents, music, pictures and videos. These are normally found in the My Documents, My Pictures, My Music, My Videos folders. There is no need copying things like programs or other stuff because they will not work. They have to be installed thru the normal process to update the windows folders, settings and registry.
