  • Laptop 10.4 pinout

    I'm sorry to sound like a complete moron, but i've got a Toshiba 10.4" LCD that i'd like to use and am having a terribly difficult time trying to figure out where to even start. It has a 14 pin connector (d-sub, i guess it's called??) which i assume could be connected directly to a VGA port, when i search 14-pin vga pinout on google, I get these character display pinouts of like:

    1 Vss - - Power supply (GND)
    2 Vcc - - Power supply (+5V)
    3 Vee - - Contrast adjust
    4 RS 0/1 I 0 = Instruction input
    1 = Data input
    5 R/W 0/1 I 0 = Write to LCD module
    1 = Read from LCD module
    6 E 1, 1->0 I Enable signal
    7 DB0 0/1 I/O Data bus line 0 (LSB)
    8 DB1 0/1 I/O Data bus line 1
    9 DB2 0/1 I/O Data bus line 2
    10 DB3 0/1 I/O Data bus line 3
    11 DB4 0/1 I/O Data bus line 4
    12 DB5 0/1 I/O Data bus line 5
    13 DB6 0/1 I/O Data bus line 6
    14 DB7 0/1 I/O Data bus line 7 (MSB)

    ...What is a data bus line? Where are my Red/Green/Blue Ground and Video pins?! And the power inverter ribbon cable that goes to the motherboard makes 4 total connections.. But the ribbon cable is split and i don't even know how to hook a voltmeter up to the remaining cable.. I am just obviously terribly lost, and I would really appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction

    More importantly, does anyone here know how to solder a freaking ribbon cable back together?
