Default Re-use Laptop Monitor

My old laptop is not functional, and since its a Vaio laptop, I can't find any service centers around. I decided to re-use the components. I have pulled out the RAM and HDD and plugged them into new laptops. I have also taken out the CD/DVD-RW and I'm thinking of a way to use it. My current problem lies on the laptop monitor, which is said to be one of the most expensive parts of the laptop. I hope I can turn it into a stand-alone monitor, and I know there's some tutorials out there, but I still want to make things for myself before experimenting around. Here's some pictures of the disassembled monitor.

The two small plugs was previously connected to an intel centrino wireless-n 2230, which was connected to the motherboard. The larger plug is directly connected to the motherboard. Can anyone help me identify what they are, and if possible, what to do with them? Thank you.
