Can I turn my broken dv9000 (faulty gpu) laptop's screen into a desktop monitor?

I have a hp DV9000 laptop with the faulty nvidia graphics chip. I have played around with "repairing" it for a little while, but I have replaced the laptop with a new one. The screen is still good and its 1680x1050... I don't know what the cable that plugs into the mobo is called, but is there an adapter I could buy to convert it to vga? I realize I would still need to run power to the screen, so would the ac adapter work for that?

Any help would be great..... thanks

There is no easy way to do this, there are no conversion kits in the retail market for this. But.. http://lifehacker.com/272847/convert-your-unused-laptop...



Thanks for your reply...

I looked at the link, but that method requires a working laptop. The gpu on my dv9000 has failed so that way wont work for me.
