Does anyone know if I can play my PS3 through the screen on my laptop? The laptop has an hdmi input/output but i'm not sure if it would work.

 

Has anyone tried something like this or have any suggestions?

I kind of doubt your laptop has HDMI input, but if it does I don't see why PS3 shouldn't work.  Maybe send us your laptop specs.

I don't ... its a new technology. Why wouldn't newer laptops have it? 

 

Oh...and my dell has an HDMI plug too. I think its output only though.

You mean an HP Compaq 8510p

 

anyway, I think that is only HDMI out...if you want to be sure go over to notebookreview.com and post the question there, I think they will be of better help (considering it is a laptop site)

It should...plug it in and give it a try (make sure the laptop's HDMI is switched to "input". You should let us know how it looks and if it did work (settings).

 

Good Luck!

I would be shocked if it is an HDMI input.  Quite likely, it's output only.  I did a quick search on that laptop and indeed it has an HDMI out, but have found nothing that says it's an HDMI in.  If it is, cool, but I seriously doubt it based on my 60 seconds of searching...
