Does anyone know of a way that a laptop's monitor can be connected to another PC? I have a laptop and I want to play games on it but it's hardware doesn't support gameplay (only 16MB AGP). So I want to connect my spare PC to it's monitor so I don't have to purchase another monitor.

Doubt its possible.
The laptop is internally connected to the electronics that directly drive the screen. Its not like a "stand alone monitor" in most laptops. There is no "monitor input" only a "monitor output"
