hello all! I have a broken laptop (toshiba a105) but the screen is in mint condition. I also have an hp pavilion dv6000 running on vista. I just want to use my toshiba a105 screen as an external monitor for the pavilion. I have already disconnected the lcd from the a105. The lcd serial is LTN154X3-L06

These are the pics for the a105 screen:

The available ports on the pavilion are vga and expansion port 3.

THANKS IN ADVANCE! :)

I have been asked this question at least 200 times. You can do it but unless you are very into making your own custom electronics, don't bother. If this was easy there would be dozens of kits for sale on Ebay to do this. Anyway, hers what someone says works on the instructables website.

Are you the one that asks the same question on Yahoo?

Well if you could figure out the wiring and if the Ipod has enough power to fire it up , you may be the only person with a "instructibles" on how to do that. i love reading instructibles. They have let me make a wall mount 15 inch photo collage viewer out of a few of my old dead laptops. I am constantly looking there for ideas.
