Hi,
I've two laptops, both using wireless connection thru a wireless router(AP). One of which the screen is dead, so I want to know if there is a way i could logon to this laptop via the other one.

I can see the drives info of the 'dead' one from my other laptop so the network itself is working..

Pls help
Thanks.

Hi Chicagotech, care to explain more on the TS/RDC access as I do not have any extra external monitor..

Hi Spacecowboy706, how do you setup remote connection?

Thanks

Yes, it does have a connector for external monitor but this requires extra $$$.

you might have to borrow one from somebody, just for a couple of hours, so you can get it configure the way you want it. or just buy an old black and white POS monitor, you can probably find one for 5 or 10 bucks
