    You can, there is software that streams your desktop to PS3, but it costs money and you would have too much lag to enjoy a game.

    Alternately, if you have:

    1x VGA port on your laptop
    1x VGA port on your TV
    1x VGA cable

    You can skip the PS3 altogether and hook the laptop directly to the TV. I know it's not what you're looking for, but it's an option. If you don't have the cable, you can always buy one for cheap. (Again, I know you said you don't want to purchase anything, but I'm just throwing it out there.)

    You could try installing Linux onto your PS3, provided you haven't updated to the latest firmware yet and you've got a fat PS3. I'm sure there are a couple of free streaming programs for Linux.

    You cant use either of those to stream your laptops Desktop to your PS3, perhaps by installing Linux, you may be able to do it via VLC.

    As KajNrig says, a VGA cable is the best option, they cosy hardly anything.
