Hello,
I have a slightly used laptop that has a bad connection with the screen, and I have an old desk top with a flat screen and new keyboard and mouse. Can I hook my laptop to the flat screen and use it as my desktop computer?

If your desktop is an all-in-one then no. But otherwise, yes.

There should be a video port on your laptop somewhere, probably VGA. Connect that port to your monitor.

most common display ports: HDMI, DVI, VGA. Google them to see what they look like and see if your laptop and/or monitor has one. If they both have the same one then that's what you will use. If they both don't have the same one, then look into a converter.

Very good chance you can use the laptop with the LCD monitor, keyboard and mouse.
