I lost my monitor for my PC. Is there a way I can hook up my PC (with XP) to my laptop (with Vista) to use the monitor and keyboard on the laptop with my PC? Or at least use the laptop monitor for my PC? Thankyou

It not possible unless your laptop happens to have a video-in connection of some type. I have thought about this, and other than what I just said, you could always do a remote desktop or VNC type of thing... but thats just not realistic. If you are an electrical engineer, you may be able to figure it out, with some advanced circuitry and whatnot... wow, I am thinking far too hard.

Simple answer, no.

I have an S video jack on the laptop but I would think that is a video out?

Thats' video out. About the only way I could possibly see is to set up the PC with a borrowed monitor connect it to a broadband connection enable WOL (Wake On Lan) and configure remote desktop. Or order a new monitor from Newegg.com. Also May I ask how you "loose" a monitor? :thumbsup:
