ok, I have two monitors on my pc, and am running out of monitor space, that is, I cannot fit all my programs on my monitors, so I was wondering if my laptop could be used as a spare monitor? It has 256megs of ram, radeon mobility 9000 with 32megs of video memory, 1 working usb port, 1 100mbs ethernet port, and it uses a 15" widescreen monitor, and it can use a secondary monitor, if I can get it working as a third monitor, I will add a fourth by linking it up to hte laptop, and my budget is $0

Well, Does it have a video input? Without one I don't think there is a way to use it as a monitor.
