    There are probably converters, but a link to what you got, or telling us what the current input into the lcd is, would be VERY helpful.

    TFT (Thin Film Tranistor) just one form of LCD. It has nothing to do with the inputs available for that particular screen.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Maybe I am confused, but if the input of his screen is DVI, or Composite, or NTSC or PAL, or whatever, there might be a converter to allow him to use the screen with his computer. I thought that was the question. Am I mistaken.

    Unless I'm mistaken, DVI and Composite are types of input, and the other two are not. Physical inputs, that is.

    Composite comes in at least two flavors I know of, NTSC (US Standard) and PAL (European standard)

    But, check out this link http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=vga+converter

    Or you can build your own if the LCD screen is a composite RGB screen designed for playstation.
    Search for SCART to VGA with google et voilà, i used this kind of converters with few components but take care to not use 5V as recommanded in a lot of schematics, use 3V or less

    My point is this.
    The guy got a TFT screen. We have no clue as to what inputs the screen has. It could be a DVI, it could be composite. It could be s-video. It could VGA and he doesn't realize it. It could be a Lilliput with that funky mini-DIN plug.

    Oh, O.K. Now I understand, however, I wonder if the OP understands
