How do we enable our NEC laptop to function as monitor for a secondary system: Tower is MICRON -OS windows 95---The NEC laptop OS is MS-DOS
with windows 3.1[however NEC has 'glitch' in that all files' attributes are "system" and cannot read from fixed disk.] Can we enable communication to and from the MICRON tower and the NEC laptop so they function as a tower that recognizes the laptop as its monitor? [Information about our primary system ... -OS is WindowsXPSP2 Home -Dell Dimension4700 -Pentium4 512RAM ...attempted using 'Add Hardware' wizard but as novices with our home computer, any hints, advice, etc. most appreciated.]
