    Yes, search the forums. The info is here. It aint easy, or cheap, but it is doable.

    if there relatively modern screens there lvds interface... they run on 3.3v, but you need a controller

    if there older than 3 years or so, they may be a ttl interface... still needa controller...

    you need a controller for each of these types....

    I'd use a hamster in a wheel to generate the electricity to power 'em....
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Heck, of a junk box with parts for a 3.3v generator from a hamster wheel. Well of course, except for the hamset
