Ok I havent done much research on this or anything and obviously dont know much about it but, is it possible to hook a norm pc up to a laptop screen? I'm not talking about using video ins or anything on a laptop to do this, i mean by taking the screen off the laptop and maybe splicing the wires to make it work on a pc. Is there an adapter of some sort i would need to get?
Thanks for the help in advance

If you also took the inverter out of the laptop I am sure you could ger it to work. It will not connect directly to the outpu of a PC video card.

Hi Cosmoe

Probably more trouble than its worth. The laptop screen will need some way to convert the analog signal from the video card back to a digital signal (that's how LCD flat screens work). You would need to find out the input pins, signals and voltages that the Lcd uses. Just tieing a few wires together probably won't work.
