Your title and description are inconsistant.

Do you want to make it so a video card on a desktop system can send a
signal to an LCD on a laptop?

Or do you want the Laptop to send a signal to the videocard of a
desktop PC (trying to use some screen/video capture thing.

In sum, what precisely to do want to do.

If you want to share your laptop scree with your desktop computer, you
have to use synergy :
There's no way to directly connect the LCD screen of the laptop to
another desktop computer.
