Can i connect my pc with a laptop Display?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey Guyz 

Sorry for my bad english.

 

i am trying to connect my laptop display with my pc because luckily my laptop display is overclocked to 100 hz and it the display speaks for it self.. it is an oled panel with reasonable response time.. i wanna switch from my desktop 60 hz monitor to laptop 100hz monitor.. i found some solutions online but all of them was a screen mirroring softwares which does not utilize my laptop 100hz because they stream at 1080p 60hz.. and also they have unreasonable amount of input lag.. my laptop is very old.. and no one uses it anymore.. i also tried windows 10 wireless display thing.. but my desktop does not support miracast and without that it is not possible.. so if there is any kind of solution out there which can solve my problem and with that solution i can use my laptop display as a secondary display that would be great and also if it does not have unreasonable amount of latency that will also be apreciated.. just leave your ideas.. i am here to try them..

Thanks :)

I think you can’t, since the HDMI in the laptop is actually a Display Out.

Unless you can find a compatible controller for your display to use it over HDMI or whatever and are willing to basically make the laptop not a laptop anymore, your only option is wireless mirroring.

Dude...that *is* your solution. I gave you the two possible options. Not my fault you don't like em. Although I'm not sure what latency you're talking about when mirroring, as using Steam in-home streaming from my desktop to my Raspberry Pi has almost zero latency that I can tell.

Well again it's not like you have a choice, it's mirroring/streaming software or nothing...

 

Parsec and  Rainway are both made for game streaming and have extended resolution/refresh rate support and low latency, might work for you if the laptop isn't too crappy and can decode the stream correctly.

Because you aren't listenting to what I'm saying.

 

You: I want to use my laptop's display as a second screen for my desktop
Me: You can only use X or Y to do that, there is literally not another way

You: But I don't want to use X or Y! Just answer my question!!!1!

The only other option is taking apart the laptop and harvesting the screen. Some displays can be adapted to be used as external displays but not all. What laptop do you have (or better, what model is the display)?


I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.
