  • need advise about latop screen and hook up. to car pc atx mobo

    a buddy is sending me a few old latop screens for hook up to the car pc i am putting together.

    is it going to be tough to power the display and hook it up to a motherboard for a desktop? also besides ripping apart the dash what mounting system would be best?

    thanks

    If you are keeping the laptop base in the car for the “PC” functionality then you then you won’t have too much of a problem doing this. You are normally able to extend the LCD connection cables to an OK length.

    If you are thinking of just using the LCD panel from the laptop that is when things would get very messy. You would need to find a LCD driver for the display which would take the VGA signal from your PC and change it into a signal that your screen would be able to display. It’s not impossible but it’s not much fun either.
