Is there a way to hook up an Xbox to a laptop?


My TV is busted. Would it be possible to use a laptop to play my Xbox?

Most laptops only have HDMI/VGA out ports

Yeah I won't be able to play it on my laptop without buying a few things. Plus I would need to buy the eye TV program. Screw it. New TV it is!

What video card is in your laptop? HDMI-in may be enabled with the correct drivers

Dell Inspiron i3. I haven't made any changes to it so it is as it was when I bought about 3 years ago.

Nah, don't think its gonna be able to do it. Only high end mobile graphics cards have the ability to do hdmi in, and often only dell actually enables it with their drivers. =/
