    dan,
    which screen is it? you might be able to download the specs
    and that might have the connector type.

    well i was checking out the ATI card and it has a 20pin
    DFP connector:
    http://www.ati.com/na/pages/products...lcd/index.html

    unfortunately for me i have the Sharp 8.4" and i think i need
    a 32pin DFP. also even if your screen has a 20pin DFP you
    will probably want to verity that the pins out of the card
    match the pin-ins into the LCD. I'll email ATI and see if i can get the LCD pinouts.

    I have heard the dfp connectors are some kind of standard, but the stuff on the LCD is specific to the lcd.

    www.flat-panel.com has been really helpfull in finding the right cables to connect my lcd stuff. they are kinda pricey though.

    Dont forget, you still need an inverter for the backlight - that part does not come with the ati or matrox card..... its around 30 bucks from flat-panel.

    The screen is a NEC NL8060BC31-05. It came with the inverter already, or I think that's what it is. It's some little PCB that the seller called a "Backlight power module" or something. I should stick it in my scanner and post a pic...

    Here's what the attached board looks like.


    Anyone know what it is? On the left is a beige connector that goes into the LCD and the right is the same type of connector, but with way more pins in it.

    Yup, Its an inverter - double check the schematics when you fnd em.... but going by the photo -

    The left side is High voltage out,It should attach to a connector on the lcd that goes to the backlight.

    The right side is low voltage in. This should go to a 12v DC source.

    Sweet. Well that saves me $30. Still can't find any leads on a LCD controller though. What kind of controllers are you guys running? (for the ones with laptop screens)

    Yes...I have a torisan DSTN display too. The refresh rate is too slow to do DVD very well, so I didn't bother getting a controller for it.
