    Um...what?

    Do you mean connect a desktop tower to a laptops screen and use that as the monitor? If so; no. At least from everything I have seen it wont happen. The laptop can connect to an external monitor to run duals; but one cannot do it the other way around.

    If you have a good understanding of electronics, a lot of time on your hands, and no longer need the LCD on the laptop it is possible to remove the LCD from the laptop and manually solder a connection from the desktop to the laptop. However, because of the complexity involved and all the possibilities there could be Computer Hope cannot post information about how to do this.
