Connect my HP 100b All-in-one monitor to my work laptop

HP 100b All-in-one
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I recently was forced to use a company Laptop to remotely connect to work.  When booting up the Laptop it goes to a Logon screen to connect to work.  I can't seem to boot it up to the the Windows screen to use for personal use.


I would like to use my HP100b monitor instead of the laptop (along with mouse and keyboard but those are not an issue).
The issue is that there is only USB ports on the HP100b.  The laptop (lenovo Thinkpad) has an HDMI output that I know I can hook up to a newer Monitor but I don't have all that much room in my home "office" and don't want to buy another monitor.

Is there a converter to go from the laptop HDMI to an HP100b USB port?

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

The USB ports on the monitor are NOT for video INPUT -- so even if you did get an HDMI-to-USB adapter, that would do you no good. 

 

Here's a quick Google search I did on those adapters:  https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=hdmi%20to%20usb%20adapt...

 

As you can see, some of those are pretty cheap -- so if you wanted to try it you could, but it's basically a waste of time.
