Seperating Laptop screen from the base, but need to connect it back on a daily basis as my only machine and need for in home use too
Screen- male end -----> female end long extension cable to male end <--------- - female end Laptop base
The cable will have 14 wires (5 for screen info and 9 to display adapter- so possible two connectors but would prefer the one)
Need connectors which is
1) easily seperable
2) female end mounts flush on dash OR hangs off but doesnt look cheap
3) cables are very small so something which won`t be too hard to fit on.
4) It will be unplugged on a daily basis so something that is hardwearing and doesnt fall apart.
I still don't get what are you trying to do.
Are you separating the laptop and its monitor and move the monitor to a different location? If so, it may not work because of length limit for the back light inverter (or whatever it is)
Or are you using the laptop with a different screen (7" Lilliput, Xernac, ...)? If so, get a VGA extension cable.
Yup seperating screen (in its housing) from laptop base.
should work as extending the wire from the MB to display adapter NOT wire from display adapter to screen
Doing on a budget so dont want to buy screen, also like the large diamete of current screen
anyone 14 wire connector recommendaions?
Good luck getting that to work. Very, very few laptops have monitors that can be moved more that a couple of inches from the lcd controller that is part of the motherboard. And as far as quick connecting and disconnecting, i have no idea how you plan to accomplish that. All I can say is hopefully it isn't a very nice laptop.

Ive seen this done once before it was on a compaq laptop and he was able to extend the cables about 40cm
anyway i know this is an aussie website but it may be of some assistance
If its not leaking something its not a Holden
That is why they invented LVDS. LCD monitors can't be far away from their controllers. 95% chance it won't work.
Use a DB-15 connector...vga connector.
CarPC install is starting to come along again...
I believe Yuriy on these boards used a parallel printer cable if I remember correctly. He discussed it over in the showcase thread for his Saturn. I'm sure he'll be glad to help.
