Default This is a hard one.

Ok this should be a challenge for any good techies out there. I recently acquired a bare lcd screen and want to put it into my computer. Does anyone have any idea how I would do this. The LCD is HERE.


The Spec sheet is HERE.

If anyone can help me with this I will be eternally in their debt.

EDIT: I don't need to know how to put it into the case. I need to know how to wire it up so it actually displays something.

i would try to contact Maximum PC magazine and ask them, i'm sure a dremel or other small cutting/drilling tool was used, also a second video card was needed. They have one in their 4ghz PC of the year. I'm sure I wasn't of great help, but that's what I would do.

Its not the modding part that is hard. What I need to know is how to get it to actually work. It is pretty much a bare LCD so I need to figure out how to wire it to a serial port or even a VGA port.

I'm sorry looking at this page a bit further it does not seem to describe what wiring you need to do besides power. let me look some more.
