how to use the touch screen of one computer on another computer

I am trying to do something that may very well be imposable.
I have an older pc with windows xp and a single core 1.8 GHz processor, but it also has a touch screen. so, as the tittle says, I would like to use the touch screen of the computer on my other computer that is much more capable.
I realize that there are tablets that can do this but I already have both the computers and want to see if this can work.
Thanks in advance!

  1. is this an XP laptop , or is it a separate monitor?

    Presumably if its a monitor you need to find a driver that will run on you current OS . The makers website would be the place to start looking

    It's actually a laptop... that's where I was running into problems. I don't think that it's possible. :(

    One way or another the touchscreen plugs in to the computer .
    I have no idea what that connector looks like , or what it connects to .

    Maybe you can research that. Maybe an adapter would make it plug in to a vga or DVI ?
    Presumably the touch commands are carried on some other kind of connection too so that will be an issue as well

    I havent read much of this but maybe it has some useful information
