Is this possible?

For an example, please see:
The video cable with the monitor should be all you need. Connecting the monitor would allow you to see what the computer is doing, but you would need a network connection to transfer the data or be able to write the data to a DVD or CD.
There are also ways of seeing/sharing the screen between two machines, but that tends to be more complicated and perhaps others can tell you how, should you want to go in that direction.
You can also remove the disk and install it in an external case or test cable, both of which you would need to buy and would be based on the disk drive. This would allow you to copy everything on the disk.
You could also connect the two machine by way of your home network (assuming you have one) and transfer the data.
You should be able to remove the disk and then take the computer in for repair since it is really not needed for the repair. If they really require a disk, you could buy a cheap replacement. Personally, I think it is better to not turn over a computer with any of your data on it.
