are you willing to buy an analogue to digital converter for it.

if yes
are you willing to spend ~ 300 dollars to buy one?
if no then you cant do anything with it

This has been asked here before but I ask it anyway:

Can u connect an old laptop-monitor to a desktop pc?

I would want to this becos i need a lcd-monitor for my mp3/movie-server project and the laptop monitors are cheaper than normal tft's.

So basically you are saying that i need a converter to convert digital signal to anologue signal?

Why in the Name of God would i want to do this if i want to use it as a PC-monitor?

Ok,ok maybe you're somehow right with this and im just a noob who doesnt understand why would i get a converter but could you please explain it atleast?

the signal that you would be taking from the video card is analogue (and dvi is not the right kind of digital) you need the converter to change it to a digital signal that the lcd can handle, otherwise it will not work.

understand now?

To hook it to a PC you might want to look at this fellas site:

Basically he hooks the tft to a vesa connector which many very old graphics cards have.

Okay, as far as know most laptops LCD monitors are connected to the video card on the motherboard by a video cable. The LCD also has AC/DC inverter that converts low voltage DC power to higher voltage AC for a backlight bulb. Do all laptops today this type of structure? Do all monitors today have backlight bulb? How does LCD monitor from a laptop work and communicate with the motherboard?

These days the laptops are starting to use LED backlighting. Majority of the current models out there are still with CCFL though.

You are right when you say that the monitor connects to a display adapter on the laptop. The connection is digital and different panel manufacturers and different models may have different connectors. There are no VGA or HDMI type connector standards available.
