If you are meaning computer (CPU) then you can not hook it up to a laptop and use its monitor and keyboard for the desktop.

If the desktop is on a network and the info is shared then you can access it from the laptop (that is if the desktop is running)

There are link methods via a pin cable but it requires purchasing software. Other then networking them your only choice is a storage medium like cd/dvd.

Get an external Hard Drive enclosure.

Remove the HD from the Desktop, and place into enclosure

Plug USB cable from Enclosure into laptop

Open My Computer and browse "removable storage" drive that is now there.

It's a simple process. The only thing you need to be careful of is to buy an enclosure with the proper drive interface - IDE or SATA.
