Thank you,

The machine is the HP Pavilion.

There is limited operating paperwork with this machine.

I have searched in the battery compartment as suggested in the paperwork, and come up with:-

S/N:- 5cD3283W8

Model :- 15-p209na


I am hoping to use this machine occasionally as a remote monitor from the DVR.



Hello George,
I am sorry to report, but laptop screens do not work that way. You can plug monitors into this laptop and view what is on the laptop on those screens. However, you cannot plug something into this laptop and use the laptop screen as a monitor to see what is on the device that is plugged into it.
If you need anything else in the future, please let me know.
Thank you for your time today.
