    Ok
    Here's the thing...

    I have a Sony viao notebook pcg-frv37 laptop that is very much dead, and i want to use it's monitor (B150XG02) to create (if its possible) a portable/individual, RCA compatible monitor.

    I already have the schematics but don’t really know what to do

    My objective? To use it in my room to play xbox or/and watch TV.

    Thanks for any help or ideas !!

    Hi Du' Krow and welcome to TSG.

    When you say you want to make an "RCA Monitor" do you mean you want to make a television of some type that uses RCA input jacks that input some type of video signals from a video game and can also tune in broadcast television programs?

    What kind of schematics do you have?

    Well lets say that i just want to be able to have a direct RCA video signal input, into the laptop's monitor (I already detached the monitor from the laptop) so i can use it as a flat-screen of sorts.

    And what i have is the monitor's schematics

    Your B150XG02 "monitor" is a 15 inch TFT LCD panel as described in the data sheet PDF file found in the following link:

    http://www.agpartsworldwide.com/lcd_specs/B150XG02.pdf

    It does not have any kind of analog TV video inputs that you would typically find using RCA jacks. It would take a fair amount electronics to use the B150XG02 LCD module as you describe. The cost of the parts alone to build the needed electronic interface could easily several times more than just buying a complete LCD TV set.

    In that case try a Google search for something like NTSC TFT Controller or NTSC TFT Interface and you may find information on suitable ICs or even a complete Commercial PC board product or two.

    Don't forget to get information on adding sound support.
