Hi @TSquared1,

 

I have check the spec and user guide for the 23-b030z computer.  Yes, you can connect a laptop to the HDMI port on the right side of the AOL and use it as a monitor.

Note: the volume buttons on the AIO will not work for the HDMI input. it will be controlled by the laptop.

 

So any laptop with a HDMI out port will work.

 

Please keep me informed of how things went. 

If you require further assistance, let me know and I will gladly do all I can to help you.

Hi, thanks for the info, but I don't see an hdmi port on this pc. I see several USB ports, and SD port, and dvd rw, but no hdmi. Am I missing something? What is the AOL?

Jumping in for @Tardis40, who is no longer available. I think the "AOL" he wrote is a bit of dyslexic typing, or a betrayal by a spell checker. He meant AiO. 

 

OK, you can use an AiO computer as a display if the unit has an HDMI input port. In most cases, if an AiO has an input HDMI, there will be a button beside it to toggle the HDMI to input mode and override any video output from the AiO itself.  If the AiO only has USB ports then you cannot use it as a display for another computer.

 

The notebook computer would need to have a video output, preferably a matching HDMI output. If the notebook does not have an HDMI output you can try using an adapter or adapter cable that switches between connection types, such as DVI to HDMI.  The downside is that an adapter adds another possible compatibility issue, or a point of failure. Some devices just will not work together despite having the normal hardware required.

 

I hope this helps.
