Solved!

Using an old all-in-one as a second monitor

HP All in one PC 24
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi oh clever ones!

 

I am completely useless when it comes to all things hardware so please excuse my ignorence. 

 

I have just replaced my old HP Envy23 Touchsmart All in one with a newer model (HP 24-G061A).  The old PC's harddrive decided it had had enough and went into retirement.  I got the techs to replace the hard drive as they did say it was in fine condition except of course the hard drive!

 

Therefore I now have two all in one PC's and I would like to use the old one as a second monitor.  The old one does not have a HDMI slot (it is about 5 years old).

 

Is there any way I can do this?  I am an ID and a second monitor would be quite handy....

 

Thanks in advance,

Vicki

Sorry, as far as I know -- NO.

 

While the all-in-ones do have HDMI slots in them, those are for OUTPUT, not video INPUT.

 

So, they can not be used as monitors for other PCs.
