shouldn't be to hard, you can dowload a program called spacedesk. download the drivers on your main computer. and the vieuwer on your laptop.set the rest up and you should be good. i used to do the same and that worked for me.

Hello,

 

Do you have a PC and you want to use your laptop as a second monitor?

 

If yes, the VGA/DP/HDMI/ port located on the laptop is for output, meaning that it will take the image source from the laptop and it will be shown on the external display (This case it won't work).

 

If you have a laptop and you want to connect a monitor on it then you could use that monitor to extend, duplicate etc. but it is not recommended because if you extend it you extend your resolution at the same time in conclusion your game might be unplayable since the laptop is not that powerful to handle such tasks.

PrototypeGR has right, if you only see HDMI it's only output otherwise you will see HDMI IN as HDMI OUT Ports.
[ST-E] mrhijden Say something that is also right, if you have only HDMI Out you can use Spacedesk if you have Windows 8 or 10.
For more information about Spacedesk you can look at: https://www.faqforge.com/windows/how-to-use-a-laptop-as-second-monitor-on-windows/

Spacedesk does the job but i don't know how well it works for gaming. It works over the local network which means, you must use a Ethernet cable to both devices to reduce the delay (if any), you must have a fast local network meaning your router must be 1Gbps for ideal speed (ideal but not necessary).

 

In general because we talk about real time gaming and not just simple use a research must be done before apply.

PrototypeGR I fully agree with you.
It's not ideal to use the laptop as the 2nd screen, but the question was whether it could then is the question yes.
ETS2 on 2 monitors also gives a dead corner in the middle which can be annoying, myself I would go for 1 or even better 3 monitors if you can do but not 2 monitors.
