  • extending my laptop screen (wxga)

    hi guys
    i'm new here and trying to put my old acer in my car and wanting to extend the existing screen (to save money)

    I found this post:

    very helpful.

    althoug I could not find my answer there.
    I opend me screen to find a couple of things

    1 a silver foil with 2 wires coming form either end (not sure what this is, maybe to pick op static or something???)

    2 a wire going to my webcam (pretty obvious what thats for)

    3 the chip with the power to the back light.

    4 and a "WXGA cable"

    now i was wondering if it is possible to extend the wxga cable.
    and what is the foil for?
    I'll probably wount mount the webcam.

    I also made a nice foto

    hope you guys can help, or point me in the right direction.
    also got a post running here about powering it (laptop not the screen):
