    Yes, search the forums. The info is here. It aint easy, or cheap, but it is doable.

      I'd use electricity to power them.

          if there relatively modern screens there lvds interface... they run on 3.3v, but you need a controller

          if there older than 3 years or so, they may be a ttl interface... still needa controller...

          you need a controller for each of these types....

            I'd use a hamster in a wheel to generate the electricity to power 'em....
            Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
            How about the Wiki?

                  Heck, of a junk box with parts for a 3.3v generator from a hamster wheel. Well of course, except for the hamset

                      You have a couple of options, but the hamster might be the easiest and cheapest.

                      Take apart the screen, and try to ID what LCD you have. Then search google for information.

                      That looks like an LVDS. Search the forum, and google, for LVDS information.

                      Like said, it won't be easy, or cheap. IT will cost you about the same as a Lilli or Zenarc, and won't be all that good once done anyway.

                          there is NOTHING you can just connect to those wires to just get it to work...., well.... except the matching laptop motherboard that is....

                          open it to identify the panel is the first step no matter what...

                            don't waste your time.

                            I have several 10.4" lcds with touch screen but no vga controller.

                            new controller will cost about $200.

                              You have been told several times to search the forums, and to google, but instead you keep posting. YOU NEED TO FIGUE THIS OuT ON YOUR OWN.

                              Search the forum for LVDS and the damn numbers.
