So you have a broken laptop and you’re running a VGA cable from that one to a working one with the goal of using the screen on the working one.

The VGA ports on laptops are designed to output a signal to another display such as a TV, monitor, or projector. They do not output signals to other laptop screens.

To see the output from the broken laptop you would need to connect it to a TV or monitor. Not another laptop.
