Haha, sorry, didn't know what to title this thread. Anyways, here's my situation:


Ok, so my old laptop has a busted hinge, so the screen part of the laptop won't stay erect on its own, but everything else about the comp still works fine

I haven't bothered with it b/c I haven't really needed to. My main laptop has Win7, but I tried to play an old game on it and it doesn't work well on Win7 (even tried running it on XP compatibility mode to no avail)

So, my question is: can I access my XP laptop from my Win7 laptop & essentially control the XP comp from my Win7 one? Basically, I'd be controlling the mouse from my Win7 comp & watching the game on my screen. Just don't know if this is something that's possible

Otherwise, I guess I'll have to find someone to fix the broken hinge

I am not sure if TeamViewer is basically for that purpose but why not just have the broken hinge for the laptop repaired in the first place?
