I have had water damage to my Macbook air and the laptop screen will not turn back on even though the keypad works. I really need the files off that laptop and transfer it to another laptop or computer. what is my best and most affordable option? Can I do it myself at home?

You can try connecting it to an external monitor, I'm assuming yours has thunderbolt, do you have any compatible displays to connect to it? You can purchase cables for around $8-12 that will let you connect a more common DVI/HDMI display to the laptop via its Thunderbolt port.
