I have been looking round to see if there is a solution for this question, but in vain. Please don't blame me if there is.
So I have got a broken Dell Vostro 14-5480. Its monitor has no problems at all, but I don't want to dissemble it to make an external monitor. The problem with it that makes it broken is the hard-drive. It kept failing and failing. I have changed 5 HDDs and 1 SSD within 1.5 years and it is still happening and I have completely lost hope. Therefore I am thinking of recycling the laptop so I can use it as an external display
As I understand, laptops are not meant to accept display, and I know with my current laptop if I connect both with an hdmi cable it will not work. Are there any ways to use the Dell Vostro 14-5480 screen as an extended display with my current laptop without dissembling it? Thanks!
