- Can I use my laptop as a second monitor? 9 answers
I want to connect my Dell (Windows 7) to my Acer (Windows Vista) and use them as dual monitors. The screen on my Dell is broken and I can't read anything on it. I tried to hook it up to my television and that didn't work. I found out that I need a VGA to HDMI adapter.
Is it possible to connect my two laptops even though they have different operating systems? Do I need any specific cables? I have three cables but I'm not sure if I can use them. One has two ends that seem like you can use them for the phones or something. Any help is appreciated.
