    Screen Wizards Required

    Ok friendly peoples. I have acquired an old laptop - all is broken except the screen.

    Any ideas on whether this could be rigged up in a car running off a normal home pc system.

    Here's the pics - I hope I got all the controllors I need as the rest has been chucked.
    I'm already running a 7" lilli but i want another screen to replace my dials when I get the obd reader.

    im thinking the last picture is power for the backlight ? 12v ?

    middle pic most likely the display controller and that should be all i need - its not a touchscreen so there aint 1 of those contollers on it.

    The other thing, if i run 12v through that plug on the bottom pic will the back light light up ?

    It's been a while since we've had one of these threads.

    The short answer: No, not really.

    The long answer: Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo



    You *might* be able to find a PCI controller card from EarthLCD.com, but if you do find one, expect it to be at least $150 and anywhere upwards.
