  I don't think so. You can easily use a desktop monitor with a
laptop, but I don't think there is a way to use a laptop LCD with a
desktop. The problem is the video to the laptop LCD is an internal
connector on the main board with a ribbon cable to a connector on the
LCD. You would need a video cable that connected your desktop to that
little ribbon cable connector on the laptop.

Try MaxiVista /

This appears to do what you want.  Although a secondhand CRT monitor would
not be overly expensive.
