If you stored your contacts on the microSD card, then you can just take it out and use it on the computer to find the required name and the phone number.

If you saved contacts in the internal memory of your phone, then you will need just a computer USB mouse and a male-mini-USB-to-female-USB adapter. Connect the adapter to the phone and the mouse to the adapter. You will see a cursor on your screen that does not respond to touch. You will be able to perform all of the operations with the mouse now. For example, you can export your contacts to the microSD card by launching the Contacts application, clicking the button with three dots, and selecting "Settings" > "Contacts" > "Import/Export" > "Export to SD card" or "Export to SIM card" > "Select all" checked > "Done".
