Howdo I connect a laptop to a desktop computer? Dont have a monitor for the desktop computer
Posted on 2004-08-06
I have a working laptop. And I just got a desktop computer without a monitor. I'd like to use this desktop computer as a webserver.
I don't have a monitor for the desktop, nor a keyboard, etc. This desktop computer needs to have the hard drive formated and have a fresh install of an operating system.
Is is possible to somehow connect my laptop to this desktop computer and control it (starting from formatting the drive, installing windows, etc) using my laptop screen as its monitor? If so, how? Is it easy to do? What connections are necessary?
my laptop is a sony pcg grx570
the desktop is a pentium 3 dell
Thanks a lot for your help!
