Re: Reusing Macbook Pro Display
The best thing to say is, it's not going to work.
usually for laptops the screen and motherboard need to work together, the screen is not like a monitor, and lacks the parts required to be able to convert input signals to the screen.
This process is usually done by the motherboard/graphics section, so you would most likely need to build this yourself.
You will need to know a fair bit about electronics, and possibly programming of ROM chips, to create a converter, and you would need to obtain the factsheet for the screen to know what all the pins on the ribbon do
and would need to figure out how to convert the signal from a DVI port to the ribbon inputs.
It won't just be a case of adding a DVI port to the end of the ribbon, so you would need some electronics knowledge to perform this task.
Don't forget you will also need to incorporate a power supply, the inverter and if it has one, the backlight
My advise would be
if the laptop screen works, just sell it(or the laptop as spares) on ebay and put the cash towards a good monitor.
