Connecting my xbox to my laptop

I just wanted to know if it's at all possible to use my laptop as my display for my 360? My computer is a few months old and has an HDMI port and I thought that it would work perfectly cause my xbox came with an HDMI cable. Yet I can't find the option in control panel to make the laptop my "tv" so to speak. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

Very few laptops accept a signal in from the HDMI port, the HDMI port is in most cases an output only so that you can connect your laptop to an HDTV or other HD display. If there is nothing regarding using the HDMI port as an input in the laptop instruction manual then I'm afraid it just won't be possible.

When the going gets tough find something easier to do.
