This is a project for me and i greatly appreciate all the help I can get on it.

First o fall i have a Compaq Presario CQ50 laptop.

Due to the power button being crushed it doesn't work anymore.. The monitor although works fine.

Project Goal:

My goal is to convert this monitor over so i can use it as a display for another computer. I.E. i want to take the current cable it has and wire it into a VGA cable so i can plug it into a second slot on a desktop.

FAQ:
Why?
- Because i will be turning this monitor into a Home projector essentially.
Why?
- Because i want to build it from scratch. I could go blow $600 on a projector, but I would rather make one.

Any questions let me know!!

Thanks in advance guys.

Jon
