Hi and Welcome to Just Answer,
Ok, let's take a look at this;


What you need to do is, unplug the e-machine monitor, and plug the new one in. It should find it.

You may need to install the disk that came with it, if no disk, you will need to go to the website that the monitor is from and get the drivers needed to install it to work on your computer

You will need to go to safemode to make the changes to the display and monitor. and add the software.

Go to Start-> shut down-> Reboot

Reboot your computer, F8 safe mode


Go to


Start->Control Panel->System-> System->Hardware->Device Manager->Monitor.



If there is a older Monitor there



Run the update driver for the monitor device, find your monitor that you are trying to add.


It should now work

Sorry that was my bad, for some reason I had Inspiron in my head.

I don't think you can use the laptop as a monitor from your e-machine. You can do the reverse to send the signal to the tv, or another monitor. But since you are using the laptop when the power is on, I don't believe that a signal will be received. Now with that said you can use a remote connection to remote into the e machine and use it directly from your laptop.

To install Remote Desktop Connection 32-bit computers
