Hey, it's been a small grip of years, but I figure it's time to speak up. There are *much* more affordable LCD controllers available nowadays. If you search eBay, you should be able to find them in the double-digit range nowadays.

there is only 3 ways this will work 1.you install video capture hardware on your laptop 2. you set up remote desktop software to display your desktop over a network connection 3. or you can buy and expensive lcd controller for over $200 and pray it works

No without the laptop you can not. Sorry to tell you but there is no other way this can be done besides the answers from C_t_d'.
