Exclamation How do i play my Xbox 360 through my laptop computer screen?

How do i play xbox 360 though my laptop computer screen?

I have the right cord, it connects. But i think because its a laptop and not just a monitor that the computer is trying to be displayed on the screen while the xbox is trying too. The computer wins.

Anyone have an idea how i can do it?

When its plugged in and the laptop and xbox is on, the computer blinks and reloads in black. Also i get choices on the bottoms like resolution and presentation mode but none of them make the xboxs display be shown on the screen.

Thanks in advance!
-Drew

You can't, the hdmi connector on your laptop is for sending the laptops display out to an external screen.

This^. The HDMI is only an output. You can technically do it if you have a screen cap box and just enlarge the screen on your laptop.
