    Converting laptop LCD to car LCD

    I currently have a liliput monitor in my car hooked up to an xbox.

    I got the idea of hooking up my useless laptop screen to my car.
    I searched for about an hour and 20 minutes total on google... i've gone through seven search pages on this site.

    What would it take to convert laptop's LCD to rca so i can hookit up to my xbox?

    Thank you

    Not worth the time, hassle or money.

    Thank you
    How good are you with programming? You can always make your own LCD controller... rather cheap, if quite time consuming.
    I have found you an argument; I am not obliged to find you an understanding.

    If you are hell bent on doing it, the only place I know of is www.earthlcd.com

    Look around there and see what controller card you need. The cheapest one I saw was $200 and it also acts as a 32bit 1MB video card.
