Old Laptop Monitor

  1. Feb 13, 2006 #1
    Well I recently just tore apart an old laptop and salvaged the monitor (still good)
    Now I am pretty sure it is nearly impossible (for me right now) to turn it into a useful desktop monitor
    but does anyone know of any other cool projects/ideas to do with it?

    I'm sure this would require a little work (a lot) but a dynamic picture that you'd hang on the wall would be neat.

    Ive looked into this for years. You need a special controller card = $$$ that will work with the exact model of lcd. In every instance i could think of its vastly cheaper to but a lcd monitor and rip it apart for your needs.
