    Laptop LCD question, pls help

    Hello everyone, I purchased a laptop lcd screen (very cheap) and am wanting to use it on a comp I am building. Of course, instead of a common monitor plug, its got wires coming out of the lcd frame, I am hoping to splice the wires and a monitor plug. Anyone have any ideas if this would work or not? Or have any experience in this kind of mod?

    screen is a 14.1inch tft lcd
    from a gateway solo9150

    1. You need a controller card
    2. It's not cheap
    3. It's not worth it
