Let me explain, my laptop died a while back, and just for kicks pretty much I took it apart. anyway, the monitor is fine and the connection is intact, and I want to use it as a display...If I can figure out how to do it . basically I'm wondering if it's as simple as a DVI to whatever the laptop monitor uses adapter, or if it's inordinately complex/expensive. Anyone out there have any idea if this is even possible? And if so how one would go about doing it?
