The HDMI on your laptop is no doubt OUTPUT. Meaning you can send a signal from your laptop to an HDMI screen. You can't use it as INPUT to display a signal from an outside source.
There are 10 types of people in this world. Those that understand binary, and those that don't.

You can use your HP laptop to remotely log on to pi and display pi screen on HP. What operating system is on the HP?

malakai gave some solution here on this thread I started:

viewtopic.php?f=27&t=46473&p=366152#p366152

WebPi also gave me a solution on the same thread using windows remote desktop but you need to install a package on pi.

The speed of these two solutions is not as fast as using a screen directly connected to pi but you don't have to dedicate a display or keyboard/mouse for pi.

On Ubuntu, open the finder and type in "term". You'll see a program called Terminal with a black icon showing >_
Open this and enter the command below (replace 192.168.0.X with the IP address of the Pi).
Code: Select all
ssh 192.168.0.X -l pi

You'll need to type y e s, the first time and press enter. Then enter the password for the pi user, typically raspberry and you should be in. This will give you command prompt access only though, if you need desktop access you'll need to set up a VNC server on the Pi. Google around for how to do this, there are plenty of articles online.
