Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. It could be done. You need to trace the cable from the laptop lcd into the computer where it is terminated. The degree of difficulty will depend on whether this terminates with a standard video connector, or a non-standard connector, or is hard wired. If it is standard, easy. If not, hard to harder since you will need an adaptor or schematics/ pinout data.
