hi guys,

My phone screen is broken and i can't access my data etc. on it anymore since touch and screen don't work. I'm wondering if it's possible to plug it onto an pc and stream the screen to my pc (without an app installed on the phone.) just like downloading an os from pc to android. It's a samsung galaxy s advance. any help would be greatly appreciated!

Nothing exists to my knowledge which duplicates a cellphone screen on to a PC monitor, the best you can manage is just to see what apps and files are stored on it using Windows Explorer, and that's not even close to what you want.

Needs a new screen, or a new phone altogether.

So you need the data only? It doesn't require screen on PC. Is USB debugging enabled on your phone? If yes then download android SDK from here
Inside there navigate to SDK-->Platform tool and hold down shift key and right click anywhere and select "Start command window here". In CMD type "adb devices" if it shows device it means your device has debugging enabled and you can proceeded if doesn't show, this method wont work. next command is "adb pull /" It will copy all files from SD card and put it in plat-form tools folder

Showing android screen on PC is possible BUT you cannot control it without any app installation.
