[ad]Dear Computer Lady,
How can I hook up my lap top to my motherboard computer. I can’t afford a new monitor and I need to access my files.
Thank you for helping me with my computer, Sandi
I don’t believe that it is possible for you to use your laptop screen as a monitor for your desktop, simply because there are no hookups for that type of setup.
In order for this to work, your laptop would need an incoming video connection, but most laptops have an outgoing video connection so that you can hook it up to a projector or other large screen device.
I am, however including your question this week because it is possible that somone else has figured out how to do this. I will let you know if anyone sends in a solution.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
