I honestly dont know if it is IMPOSSIBLE but Im sure if you could do it you probably couldnt do it without buying another piece of hardware. What kind of laptop you have? what kind of ports does it have on it?

Well, i got two laptops, one is a toshiba portege with docking system and the other is a satellite. Im trying to connect through the normal monitor wire (not dvi, normal analog), i know that port does output because i connect the laptops to my projector once in a way but i dunno whether it can also input. What do you reckon i should try and do?
