I have a 17" widescreen laptop that the video card died on. The resolution is 1680x1050, and I was thinking of gutting the computer for the inverter, screen, and backlight. I know there is a way to adapt it to work with standard VGA, I believe there is an adapter. However, I can't find anyone with an adapter.
Does anyone have experience working with raw panels?
Amazing. I asked if I could do this a little bit ago and was told no and flamed for asking a question that's been asked before. Now here it is again and it's suddenly possible.
Im running a 15.4 widescreen Toshiba laptop panel. Its got vga input via an after market LVDS controller. Ive linked to an ebay ad that will probably do the job, but it may not cover widescreens. If that fails try asking motorcity, they will help you find one.
Continued Worklog... Upgrades in progress:
*15.4" WXGA LED backlight touchscreen upgrade
*Custom fiberglass dash bezel
I don't see anyone saying it isn't possible.
