Having problems with your Dell XPS M1330 Laptop ?

Hooking a PC to your laptop's screen

\015 I fix computers for a living, and I was wondering if there was a way to hook up a PC tower that I fix, to my Dell XPS M1330's laptop display. The laptop has a VGA input, and I have a cord that is VGA Male on both sides. I'd rather try to figure this out then put another computer screen on my desk just to fix a computer.\015

Answers :

Unfortunately you cannot use a laptop screen to view output from other computer sources. As you are surely aware, you may plug another monitor into the VGA plug on the laptop to view the laptop's output, but the plug is only for the laptop's output.

Nice thought, though.
