Question about Sony VAIO GRT170 Notebook
This sounds like a resolution problem.
Can you move the windows messenger out of the way so you are looking at the Desktop screen (usual screen which has icons on it which is the first thing which appears after it has gone past the welcome screen)
On the desktop screen right click on a clear bit of space and try and change the resolution.
Failing this if you have an alternate monitor or LCD TV with VGA monitor input try use your TV and by outputting to your TV you will probably have enough of the screen displayed to copy what you need.
If all of the above fails. Best thing to do is to take your laptop Hard Disk Drive out of the computer and slave it into another computer or laptop to copy your documents / pictures etc as you clearly stated your not interested in reparing it. If your not sure how to do this then please come back to me

if you still can see the desktop (or a bit of it), right-click onto the background picture, goto properties, settings then, choose the screen option here and if both of the internal and external monitor were properly recognized by windows u should be able to choose and activate the external monitor here!
perhaps increasing the Hertz rate of the graphic adaptor(see the same menu, graphic adaptor, list of all modes) may add to your comfort when using an old, non-tft or lcd monitor.
If this worked out you will be able to use the laptop as a stationary device from now on.

Have you tried IKEA? They have a corner couch that also opens into a sofa bed for around $800. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30213953/
