    How to wire a laptop lcd to vga cord?

    I want to build a custom dash for my '91 Awd talon that will contain a lcd monitor off of a laptop. I work at a family owned computer store so I have access to what ever I need. I want to figure out how I can wire the lcd to a cord that will then plug into a motherboard. If anyone knows how to do this I would appreciate any info. Thanks, Matt.

    And if you find out post away. This has been asked a million times before, and NO-ONE has had a desent response, not that I have read anyway. The option you are presenting is a extremely hard one.

    But if you find any info on this, make sure you share it.

    yeah, mine is the same, old school (early 90's) ibm screen with no specs at all on it. just 4 wires (prob. lights) and a bunch pf pin connects.

    You will need to find out what kind (model #) LCD panel you have. Then you will need to get a compatible controller for it. Then you need the pin outs...then you start wiring....

    or you can just buy one already set up!

    haha bosstone you know how to market yourself
    a controller card is expensive, and you might not get it to work anyway.
