I have Lenovo IdeaPad B575 Laptop And I am stumped by the task of using my laptops lcd screen for playing my xbox 360 on

 The laptop has an hdmi port on it, but i dont know if i can use that as an input from my 360.?

You can't; that HDMI port is output only. You would need to acquire a USB-attached video capture adapter, run appropriate software (which generally comes with it) to display that input on the PC screen, and feed the game into that.

USB-attached video capture adapter?
Would it be easier to get a HDMI to A/V cable? And if so will I have to buy one online?
The PC itself has no video capture hardware, and no video input. You *MUST* add something to convert the video into digital form which the computer can then display.

You realise that this is why people buy PC-games don't you?
