    Does anyone know I can hook up my PS3 to my laptop, so I can play my PS3 on my laptop. My laptop is the HP dv5 and it does have an HDMI port.

    Your laptop has an HDMI output port, not an input. You can't use it to take an external video feed. :no:

    The only way you can do that is with a video capture lead, but these things can drop your framrate by half, they're really made for recording console gameplay on a computer but you can use them just to play aswell.

    heres a link for the most common one I know of, called the Roxio game capture
