Default Using my laptop as a second monitor

Hey guys & gals,

I have a pc with windows 7 as my main computer. I also have a laptop that only has Ubuntu installed on it. Can I use my laptop as a second monitor for my pc with windows 7?

If so, does anyone have instructions for me to follow?

Thanks a lot for your responses!

Welcome to the forum

I have no idea how to solve your problem so I googled it, but only found this.

Turn old laptop into second monitor.

Unless someone here knows a way, assuming its possible, then it looks like your only option is to get a program that is suggested in the link I gave. I'm not too sure whether they work or not.

If you don't get any help, try posting this in the appropriate section on the forum and it may get more views and a solution.
