Advice on new laptop install for newbie
I have a HP Omnibook 6000 which has a broken screen mounting bracket, an ideal candidate to go in my car !
I have removed the 15" screen leaving a 26-way cable connector. Has anyone tried extending a laptop screen 2-3m away from the laptop ?
I appreciate I haven't the space to mount the screen permenantly in the front of the car but thought I'm make up a way of having it quickly removable for security. Besides I can't afford to buy a new monitor.
The laptop has a built in DVD player so I should be able to play DVD's back in the car as well.
I was hoping to run the audio output from my laptop into my Sony head unit but looking on the internet I would need to spend £100 to get a line-in unit for the headunit !!
Has anyone done anything similar and have any suggestions ?
