Ok, I am sure the topic seems strange to you, but it's exactly what it should be. Here is my sitiation. I am currently visiting my girlfriend in Japan for 3 months. While I am here I brought my home PC (desktop) with me to keep me busy. Seeing as I have the orginal 19" monitor from dell, it was way to big to bring over. I figured I would just buy a new monitor while I was here. Then I thought about this:
Can I use my girlfriends Toshiba laptop as a monitor? I am not looking to use any of the other hardware on the laptop (Touchmouse, CD rom, speakers, ect.) I just want to be able to use my desktop and display it on the laptops monitor.
Now I see on the back of the laptop there is onboard video card just like on a desktop (Looks exactly the same as the back of my tower does where I would normally hook up my monitor). Are there any special wires I can use to hook the monitor? Maybe a cable connection with 2 male ends?
I can buy a new monitor, I am just looking for a way to save money while I am here and that would be 1 less thing to buy and ship back.
Thanx in advance for any help you can be.
