CPU's aren't used to store data, VGA is only used to connect to a monitor, and 1GB and 4GB (yes, those are written in capitals, Gb is different from GB and gb and gB don't exist) is RAM, not storage.

So, although your post only contains riddles in stead of a clearly described situation, the answer to whatever you mean most likely is NO.

But you can use a home network to store data from your laptop on the hard disk of your desktop even if that runs without monitor, although it might be better to use an external hard disk or a USB-stick if the 200 GB (or whatever disk space it has) of your laptop is full. And surely it's better to clean the hard disk of your laptop and use only that.

It is very difficult to understand your problem! As far as i understand you use your laptops monitor with your personal computer PC, right ? If you connect your PC to your laptop you use only laptops monitor and cpu, ram, HDD from your PC. So you use the better hardware.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
