Flickering problem on 2nd screen
#1
Recently I've tried using my 2nd laptop (lent by uni) as a 2nd monitor for my main laptop, but it flickers like crazy during certain and random times.

Here's video of the flickering happening on full scale with Notepad++ especially when I scroll around the text file:




I've been googling solutions to no avail. Any tips on fixing this?

Can you try with another monitor as second display?
Does the screen look fine when using its own computer or plugging in another one?

Pretty sure the reason behind this is that the port for a laptop is so the laptop displays to a monitor, not so the laptop is used as a monitor.

How are those computers even connected to each other? I don't see any cable going between them.
