Mix & match laptop projects

I have several old laptops in different nonworking conditions. I plan on making at least one digital picture frame using what I can from these for a Christmas gift fo a dear friend.

Can I use components from the different units to do this such as. screen from one, hd from another and so on?

Here's a list of what I have and their issues
Compaq Armada 7400 no power chord so cannot fire up to see issues (what's the yellow button in center of keyboard holding down the "B")? This is the unit I would like to use for the picture frame if I can find/build/adapt a power supply.

HP Pavilion ZE5300 broken screen

Acer TravelMate 4010  No screen, bad video card
