Connect Computer To Laptop Screen

My home computer's not working i think it's the screen monitor. Can i somehow connect it to my laptop screen?

Answer:- no - laptops don't have the right "video-in". Perhaps you could borrow a monitor from a friend. (Lots of folks have extra monitors around. ) Does your monitor have any on-screen menus to access various adjustments? For a simple test, try to activate the on-screen menu. If that doesn't come up at all, that will confirm that the monitor is dead.

Can I Connect Desktop To Laptop?

A number of years back i wrote of my old desktop and switched to a laptop, but i still maintained some private data on the desktop and accessed it from time to time when i needed it. However, recently the monitor of the desktop packed in which means of course i can no longer see what is on the old machine. Question. Is there anyway i can hook my laptop up to the desktops hard drive and use the laptop to access the information. Im not into computer maintenance so taking the desktop apart is not really an option; it would have to be a computer to laptop exercise. Needless to say i want to avoid buying a monitor for a machine thats at least ten years old.

Connect A Desktop To A Laptop

Is there a way to connect a desktop to a laptop? I have a tablet laptop, but now i figure that i need a more powerful computer. With my new setup i will be getting an 8000$ computer and a 300$ dollar monitor, along with the adobe master collection. The problem i find is that you can only download adobe on to one computer, which i need for my artistic computer. Now i don't to buy a new tablet for my artwork, and i don't want to download it on to my laptop, for low res reasons. So my question is this, how can i hook my desktop computer to my tablet laptop, so that i can use the monitor and the tablet function (mouse cursor internal laptop connection not usb or svid) of my laptop, back on my desktop? Take into account that i can barely afford the 8 grand computer so make the solution around $200. P. S. I would also like to see what was going on my laptop on my other monitor as well if that is possible.

Desktop Does Not Fit In Screen - Scrolling Desktop

I just bought a new laptop and i am changing everything to what i like - which includes the size of the resolution of my screen. Whenever i go to change the resolution from 800 x 600 to make it look bigger (example: 1024 x 768) my laptop has no problems doing that but instead of making the whole desktop fit into my laptop screen, it makes it so i can sorta of like scroll up, down, left, right to see the rest of the screen (but there aren't any scroll bars, they are like invisible if u know what i mean). How do i change the setting so that the whole screen resolution will fit into my laptop screen instead of this scrolling method?

How To Connect To Internet With Desktop That Has No Wifi ?

How would i connect to the internet with an older desktop that has no wifi? I fixed my dimension 4600, it's older and as far as i know, does not have wifi capability. I would like to connect this computer to the internet but all i have is a wireless network in my house. Is there some sort of part i can buy that can make that happen? Because nowadays you can't do all that much on a computer without internet. Answer:-
You are correct. Your dimension 4600 doesn't have wifi capabilities. Does it not have an ethernet connection? A place to insert an ethernet cable? You could plug an ethernet cable into your computer and connect the other end to your wireless router. You state, "all i have is a wireless network"; usually wireless access points have ports in the rear where you can plug ethernet cables. If not, or if no ethernet in the computer. Buy a wireless network adapter that is compatible with the operating system you are using. If there are ports in the rear of the wireless access point, you could also install in your computer a network card with an ethernet connection. Either way, those are your two options. The reason i emphasized the statement about your operating system, is that if you are running windows 2000, it may be a little more difficult to find a network adapter; after all, it's all about xp, vista, and win 7 now-a-days. One last thought, and i'm mentioning this since you state your desktop is older. You can get network adapters that are usb; be sure if you decide to use usb that your computer has usb 2. 0. If it has 1. 0 or 1. 1, check that the usb adapter you are going to purchase will work with it.
