I recently got out my old sega genisis and wanted to hook it up in my room. However, I do not have a TV up there. I was wondering if I could somehow use my laptop screen to play the games. My sister also has a desktop so if it was possible I could hook it up to that I would, but the laptop would be preferable. thanks

Do you have any RCA, DVI, or HDMA video inputs on either PC? If you do its just a matter of going to your local Radio Shack to pick up an adapter and finding a set of RCA connections for a Genesis (this is the hard part).

It is possible that your video card has a video-in plug that is yellow in color and fits the male yellow plug to your Genesis. In that case, you could just 'plug and play', but few video cards have video in. If you are willing to spend $10 for this ability and wait a few days, the Plextor PX-TV100U is for you. It plugs in thru the USB interface, and can be viewed full-screen using the included software that includes a TV tuner and all the little extras. If you ever want to record the video from the input, the easiest way is to open windows movie maker and click capture video in the sidepane.

To do what you want, one of the only options would to get some sort of usb movie box or do what the above posts said. You could also just go to freeroms.com or somewhere and get a genesis emulator.
