Default Laptop as a computer base.

Is there any way I can remove the cracked unusable LCD screen of a P3 Thinkpad I have so I can just use the base of it, and attach an external monitor, without having the LCD screen in the way?

You should be able to.

Just look on the back for screws or a way to remove it.

Well, obviously I can just take it off by force. But I didn't know if there are any cables that if removed or cut off would prevent the system from working right...

Zalman CNPS7000ALCU, on lowest setting. Actually, I had it overclocked to 2.8 on STOCK before, with no problems, and it idled at 28. I think I was lucky with the stepping or something.
But I've got it back to stock now, 'til I get new overclocking memory, then I'm gonna try to get it to 3 GHz

People have gotten 3200+'s to just over 2.9GHz, lol.


No, no cables you remove will keep it from working.
