    LCD problem

    I got a 14" screen and a computer that is already in the car..
    the only problem that i have that the connector on the motherboard is regualer VGA Monitor port.
    But the screen is from the Laptop.
    So my question is there any connector or switch or information for LP141XA A1 Screen.

    You're not going to be able to use that laptop screen with your computer. Laptop LCD's use a purely digital signal and you would need a lcd controller that probably doesn't exist to convert it to VGA or DVI. Even if you could find the controller, it would cost hundreds of dollars.

    You might be able to use a DVI to LVDS converter to drive that screen from a standard DVI graphics card. It's on special at $600 here : http://www2.dvigear.com/mudtolvad.html

    I'd recommend you give up on this route though and look for something more reasonably priced.

    Not true. I use controllers for LVDS panels everyday.

    That controller you reference is for a specific monitor, namely the Silicon Graphics® 1600SW. That controller is a dedicated part, and won't run just any old lcd panel.
