First of all you must open lid of your laptop to see a situation inside, Be careful.....You must make sure that you have speakers bottom of your LCD if you want this to work, if you dont, you must take wires trough your laptop..,

Step 2: Drawing on Your Lid

You draw what ever you want, skulls... Lady with tits, anything where you can put LEDs.. Now connect parallel to each speakers two wires.. I recommend to connect a 100 ohm resistor to led..High basses may burns out your LEDs..

Thats sweet, but you should add a tip31 component for the leds! otherwise if you turn the volume to loud youll blow the leds.

Wait nvm, just saw the resistor. Well If you turn your volume to loud the leds will just stay on wont they?
