How do you connect a PC to my laptop as a monitor?

I use to work testing laptop panels using LEM pixinator. If you use a newer PC then it may be possible. The trick is getting analog laptop panel to sinc with newer AGP card. then there is an issue of converting the data cable to VGA or DVI and inverting the power 5 or 10 volt. Radio Shack probably has the hardware to convert the power. not to difficult. the data cable lead can be bought online or possibley salvaged from the laptop it came from. then you will need to join that cable to a VGA adapter.

If the two PC's are networked, you can use the MaxiVista software, which extends your primary PC screen onto one (or more) network available PCs. The software is very simple to install.

Most laptops have a 15 pin connector on the back, which is the standard monitor cable connector. Most LCD/plasma TVs also have a 15 pin connector also, so you can go into your nearest computer/electronics store and pick up a 6ft 15pin monitor cable for under $20. If it is a modern laptop, it may have HDMI instead, in which case you can connect it to a HDMI monitor or most LCD/plasma TVs.

Buy a vga male to male cable. Make sure your PC and laptop, both have female VGA inputs. it looks like it has about 12 dots (a vga input) and also looks similar to a weird rectangle.

How do you connect a PC without a monitor to a new HP laptop in order to use the laptop TFT as a monitor to the PC?

not an expert, might point you in the right direction though. with my laptop there is only a monitor Out, so i couldn't plug a monitor in like that (i assume your's is the same - but if you have two monitor sockets and one is a monitor input you might be able to plug it in there)you mentioned two NIC's (i assume network interface connection?) there's a thing called Remote Desktoping that means you can connect to one computer via another using a network or internet connection. If you had the PC set up to automatically accept a Remote Desktop connection from your laptop, you could connect via the NIC's and effectivly have your PC viewable from your laptop.You could use Microsoft's Desktoping method (only if the PC is Windows XP), or a friend uses VNC. I've not used either so can't guarantee them but their options.

Be careful with security though! If the PC is also on the internet be careful not to open yourself up to being accessed thru the software you install by other people.

Hope it helps, sorry if it was a bit long!

MS remote desktop info:


If you just need to work through the command line ie backups etc get putty.exe and connect through SSH. Assign one PC and the other, connect them with a RED crossover ethernet cable, just connect to the PCs IP address the u assigned it.

If there is a network connection between the computers, ie both on the same network or a crossover cable used as the previous answer indicated, you may used VNC to operate one computer from the other. There are any number of VNC's; I happen to like RealVNC:

I have a home network and I use a laptop in the family room to do work on the office computer upstairs. Keyboard, mouse, monitor all work like I was sitting in front of the PC in the office.

Java Programming
Windows 8

How do you stop the error 'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command operable program or batch file?

If you are getting that error, it means that either Java is not installed, or is not in your path.

If Java is not installed, go to to install the most recent version of the JRE.

If you're sure you have already installed Java ensure the Java executable is in your system's path. You can do this by first finding the directory it is installed in. For example, mine is installed in C:\Program Files\Java\jre6. The executables are located in the bin directory.

In order to set your path (Assuming Windows Vista), go to Start -> Control Panel -> System, then click on the 'Advanced System Settings' link on the left, then the 'Environment Variables' button. In the lower section (Labeled 'System Variables'), scroll through and find the item labeled 'Path' and double click it. In the field labeled 'Variable value' go to the end and add a semicolon (;), and then the path your installation of Java is located. Using the example I gave above, I would have added ;C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin to the end of the line.

The procedure for 64-bit Windows Vista or Windows 7 is the same, except the text you will add to the Path variable is ";C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin". Notice there is still a semi-colon at the beginning of the line.

Once you have done this, you will need to close and reopen the command prompt if it is already open, and you should be able to run java without getting this error message.

Is Windows 8 better than Windows 7?

A lot of people dislike Windows 8, and are trying to avoid it, often by using Windows 7 instead. In fact, Windows 8.0 was such a flop that Microsoft had to create 8.1, in which they fixed some bugs, and put back the start menu. 8.1 was met with better success, but people still don't like the "tablet" style system, or the greater internet dependence as much. For this reason, Windows 10 is said to be more the "desktop" style again, like Windows 7 was. Perhaps it is better in some ways, but in general, I think it is not.
