Windows 7: can i customly put HDMI in port in my old Lenovo c300

can i customly put HDMI in port in my old Lenovo c300

Hi today my parents are going to replace our old desktop which were only used for paper projects. I remembered that it was bought way back 2005, it doesn't stand out much because of its specs which were kinda slow but it does have a big screen resolution 1600x900. Instead of putting it to waste I was thinking if i could put a custom hdmi in port so i could maybe use it for my Playstation 4 and put it into my bedroom. Can any guys with experience explain if it's possible or not ?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Well, that's a PC integrated to the monitor, and I don't see any display input ports in the tech specs.

Still, can you take a good close-up photo of the back side where the input ports are?

In one word NO. You cannot add an HDMI input port to anything as the standard is proprietary and secret. You can add an HDMI output to computers by adding a video card but that is output only. The computer in question is an all in one device and is basically crippled to as it came. You could max out the memory and swap out the hard drive for an SSD which would speed it up. That is basically all you can do with it. You can pick up computer monitors with DVI and or HDMI inputs quite cheaply. Digital DVI and HDMI are different connectors of the same thing.
