Are you trying to use it as a second monitor?

well, after about ten minutes of use or so, the lapto #2 we'll call it, the screen flickers and goes wacky color and all sorts of annoyances..so i took the screen from laptop #1 and replaced laptop #2 screen...still happened..so i replaced the power converted ( i assume thats what it was..its in pic two) and the ribbon cable..it still happens, but not as often..i think its a hardware probelm inside the machine... :(    i dont use it very often so it doesnt really matter much...
