Acer Aspire 3680 Cracked Screen *help*

\015 Hi I have an Acer Aspire 3680 laptop with a completely busted screen. It has all of my school work on there and programs that I need to get into. If I were to get an external monitor... how would i go about hooking up the laptop to the monitor and what key combination would I use to get the external monitor to display the laptop screen. Keep in mind that the screen is so cracked that I cannot make out anything on the screen. If anyone has ANY advice I'm willing to take it! It would be greatly appreciated.\015\012Sincerely,\015\012Lindsey\015
