Not possible vía hardware (an old iMac has no "video-in" port). But you can try an application called "Screen Recycler":

In your 2nd post in this thread you made it sounds like your iMac was REALLY old. I don't really consider a 2011 iMac "old".:)

Here's an article that explains how the appropriate model iMac can be used as an external monitor:

Hi Nick,
That solve my question,thanks a lot Nick,we have a miss understanding of the word "old", hahahahaha, but anyway thanks you did answer my question. Great.
