    Good morning :)

    I'm wondering. On my laptop i have a screen (duh) How can i use it to play xbox 360 or for that matter.. use it as a monitor for another PC...
    What can i get that has good quality HD comp. in or VGA in. I have VGA out, but not in.....
    SO can i get some PCI card to fulfill this desire? Or is this just impossible....?



    Thanks

    Michael

    The laptop screen is hard wired (digitally) to the laptop motherboard.

    It's a proprietary digital interface that differs between makes and models.

    It's not therefore "available" to use as an external monitor, even if you were to disassemble the laptop.
