Hey, so I went home over christmas and came back with a new laptop and 2 old ones with no further use, one of which was practically dead, so I decided I'd take apart my first laptop and have a play with it. And now that i've got the screen off, I thought it would be fun to connect it up to my desktop as a third screen to go on my table. Figured it could be useful for uni work and stuff.
The obvious problem is that the cable coming from the screen isn't one that would fit my desktop, so I was wondering whether there is a way of getting an adapter for it or something? I googled, and found out about control boards, but I was kinda hoping for a cheaper option. I'm wanting a raspberry pi in the future, I wouldn't mind having this as its portable little screen, so not needing a big control board would be nice
If it is the only option though, I have no idea where to start with this. Every place i've found to buy one that's compatible with my screen looks really shady and I have no idea what to look for.
Thanks for helping and if you need the specifics, model number for the screen is LTN101NT02, and i can try to help with anything else. Here are some photos to show what I have:
