  • Laptop LCD to VGA?

    Although I've found a few things on google/mp3Car, I can't seem to find a really great answer.

    My parents bought an old Compaq Armada laptop (300mhz celeron, 256mb RAM, etc.) not really worth having - no CD drive and can't boot from USB. I took the screen out, which is an 11.3". Great for the $3 they spent on it, if I can get it to work.

    The specific screen the LCD has is a Torisan TFT-LCM TM113SV-02L01. It has the controller built into the back of the screen, but has 20 wires coming out of it that plug into the motherboard on the laptop. My guess is a 20-pin LVDS serial. Is there any way to wire this into a VGA port through a separate VGA to LVDS controller? I was unable to find the spec/data sheet on this screen.

    Well they make mobos with LVDS headers on them. But it may or may not be LVDS. Before investing in a fancy mobo or converter I would exhaust all methods of researching what makes that controller tick, and what it outputs to what pins. It could be some HP proprietary thing, never know.

      Yeah, shouldn't be too hard to find out what I can, google search for "tm113sv-02l01" return 398 results, filter out the 390 that are probably just selling it, and I'm golden.

      Edit: It appears to be made by Sanyo under the Torisan TFT-LCM name, and is apparently somewhat interchangeable with the Toshiba LTM11C307S
