    What if you are using the VIA MII motherboard with LVDS controller option?

    I played with LCD's a little bit a my last job and providing you can assign pins with the LVDS controller couldn't it be plugged directly into the board?

    Here is the controller I'm talking about. There is another one for 24bit panels

    ...if your bios supports the type of panel you have, AND you can get the pinnouts, AND you can make or get the cable, then yes, you can run a lvds screen straight off the lvds motherboard....

    Hello I have a compaq presario 1500c laptop. The LCD inside is a Torisan TFT TM121SV-02L01B. I would like to get the controller that plugs into the back of the LCD to connect to the laptop or make it have a VGA connector on the other end if you could anyone help?

    depends on the interface

    if u have a lvds interface on your lcd( have a look on the lcd specs) then u can easy extend the wires, but if it's ttl signal(x bit color signals were x= 4,6,8 bits) then extending is much more difficult..may be imposible.
    Another method to figure it out wich interface are u using is if u have twisted wires..then most of are lvds...if it is a flexible ribbon...then it's ttl

    Apple iBook LCD

    Does anyone have an idea about using an apple ibook LCD? I want to connect it to a mac mini installed in my scion Xb. The mac mini has a s-video out. so my questions is, can I convert the wiring from the ibook LCD to a S-video IN without using anything else other than the S-video OUT on the mac mini? thanks
