There is no method of interfacing a laptop "monitor" because the "screen" on a laptop connects digitally to the graphics adaptor.

Its not a "monitor" in any sense that you can interface with, in any practical manner.

But you could use a laptop as an X-monitor to a *nix system, or as a client to s Windows Terminal Server. I think you can get an X-server for Windows, but whether it works on the later versions I don't know.
