How Can I Connect Two Computers..

by LittleMiss91 / December 28, 2013 12:03 AM PST

I have two broken computers.. One the screen is broken but (the computer is fine) and one the compute just wiped itself clean and I don't even have an OS on it.. Is there a way I can connect them and use the screen from one for the computer that works.. If that makes sense..

If it are laptops with integrated monitors, it's difficult or impossible. But if you have a separate monitor that still is OK, you can use that on both of the computers. Since a monitor isn't so very expensive, it might even be worth the money to buy one.
