what you need to do is make a rca or coax converter and have it go into the screen. would help ya, but i would need to fix my xbox and get the same monitor. by any chance whats the model number of the monitor itself? it would take some work, but it might work(hinges, wiring skills, ports, detachable, ruggedize etc..)

sorry you'll really be out of luck if i understand you correctly. it would cost more than it is worth. to do this you would need to buy the LCD controller corresponding to the model of screen in your laptop.

He probably already has it, inside the laptop.

Anyway, old laptop screens suck, you'll be disappointed when you spend all that time, money, and work just so you can see ghosting and poor colour representation.

trust me on this one. except for in a rare few instances it would require purchasing a controller for the LCD screen. the one in the laptop WILL not work seperately. the rare few instances where it is not necessary to purchase the controller it involves quite a bit of work.

basically unless you have a sound ground in electronics and are interested in inventing your own way around it you may as well forget it
