      Try reading the laptop LCD FAQs before jumping to this statement.

      Yes, you should search... and Yes, It has been covered before!

      Read the FAQ!

        I agree, I was spoken about "native" possibility. My answer was not clear enough

            Considering there's no video input of any sort on your laptop, no it's not possible.
            Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
            How about the Wiki?

              although, the faq says how to put an input on, so, if i cut a hole in my laptop and stuck the plug there i could do it the same as the faq says, but do it cleanly and make the input plug just another plug on the laptop.

              yer i know theres not one on the laptop but i wanna mod it to have one.

              thx for ur help tho

              cheers.

                even if you could pull off modifying the ribbon cable & tee-ing off of it to have the wires extend out of the laptop(you can't), you would then have to connect these wires to a controller board, it STILL wouldn't work because when you connect this controller board the connection to the other board it won't work with 2 boards connected to one screen....

                not happening....
