    Is there any way that I can use my HP dv5000 as an external monitor for a HP a450n? The laptop has the display port but I don't think that it will take display in from the a450n.

    Thanks for any help

    Video ports are output only - you would need some sort of capture card/device to achieve this.

    Darn. Looks like I'll have to throw up some cash for a monitor :/
