Hi guys. I looking for some help. My hp laptop died and since a lot of parts are still good I wanted to see if there is anything I could use the screen for. Ideally, I would hook up either a portable dvd player or a car dvd to it.
It definitely works and it has 2 sets of wire hook ups. One that has a red and black wire ( + and - I assume) and another one with 3 or 4 wires.
I tried a few searches to see if anyone had any instructions on how I could possibly hook the screen that was in the laptop to anything else without any success.
Thank you for any input.

For anyone who has the same question, since no one else on tom's forums is electronically inclined enough to know the answer, here's what I was able to use to get the screen working again:
search on ebay

R.RM3251 Controller Board kit for 15.4" WXGA LCD laptop

and give those guys your screen specific information

you also need a power supply unless you already have one. It should go for 45-55 bucks depending on your screen size and resolution.

Hope this information helps someone out there
