    Well,first you would need a controller card which are relatively expensive.Second most of them that I saw required numerous solder joints on small traces.In the end it would be cheaper to just buy an lcd on ebay.

    yeah it would be much easier to use an old lcd monitor then a laptop display. but i'm sure a laptop display is doable. the person to ask would be defyant 'cause i 'member he put an lcd on the side of hp res. I. don't know where he's been these days though.

    Here is a link that I have seen where a Dutch person did get a Laptop screen to work on a computer by way of the VESA connections on a graphics card. The VESA connection is not on the newer cards. My VooDoo3 is my newest card with VESA connection. Good Luck and Happy Modding to ya.

    Its one of those things thats seems would be mega easy, but unless you have a controller laying around and can read schematics half way decently its just two much of a pain. Phaxmohdem put a LCD in his lan rig you might want to pm him for some info.
