My 3 yr old gateway laptop was dropped and the screen plasma now appears visually broke (physically all parts appear to work).
I want to use the broken gateway laptop and send the video to my working ibm laptop just for the purpose of making sure the gateway computer is still working. I know how to do this if I had a plain monitor screen but I dont have a separate monitor. Is there a way I can do this using a second laptop or do I need to go out and buy a monitor.
Please tell me if a second laptop works as the video display for a broken laptop. If so, how do I set this up?

Or an alternative could be to use svideo out and hook it up to a tv with this input type. Then you can test it out that way. Of course it won't be nearly as sharp as a computer monitor.
But your best bet is to pickup a real monitor. You would need a vga cable to connect it obviously.Donatello - The Shredder? Michelangelo - Maybe all that hardware is for making coleslaw?
Thanks for your responses.
