A picture to appear on your computer?
You mean as a backgound image on your desktop?

oops my mistake Smile
Select the surface of the computer 3d model and assign a material or shader in dependence of what software are you using.

Then add a planar UVW map to the same selection.
And add the image you want to the material you assigned.

To make it look like a real monitor screen increase the self illumination attribute of the material.
