My laptop's monitor just died due to CCFL bulb (I was replacing it until I accidentally cracked the bulb, so in the mean time, I'm waiting for new CCFL bulb to arrive, probably take a month). I have a working desktop monitor that requires to be plugged into the power outlet. Is there a way I can strip the power pack at the back from the monitor and use it with the inverter board or something on the laptop and use the monitor as a replacement for the laptop? I don't mind getting into electronics. I know how to solder if that helps.
That would require me to sit at the desk all the time. I'm not going to put it into a bag but I would love to move around the house or lie down onto the bed using it.
Then by all means, go ahead and tear up and ruin a perfectly good monitor and laptop and try to kludge together a Frankenstein that might not work at all for a month of convenience. instead of attaching the desktop monitor as it was meant to be used and waiting for the proper replacement parts for your laptop.
