    It is not possible as far as I know. There isn't any sockets where you can plug your pc into the laptops screen.
    However, you there is a VGA (output only) socket in which you can connect your laptop to a desktop monitor. But that's about it.

    He means a port on the laptop to connect your pc graphics card to, ie a video in socket.
