Can a laptop screen be used as monitor for a pc?

I have an old Compaq laptop and have aquired a pc but don't have much space for the monitor at home. I was wondering if it's possible to connect the laptop to the pc and use the laptop's screen as the pc's monitor. Any ideas?

Technically yes, but you would need a video card with a LVDS interface (not DVI unlike what you will find in PC video cards with DFP support), that's what is used in most portables nowadays. found this on other forum hope it helps
