Can I make this using nokia 3155 LCD components? Answered

Picture of

I have a broken nokia 3155 phone but the LCD's is still functioning well. I had the idea to use it as a front panel display on the PC's case to display the disk capacity, the date and time, temperature, etc.
Do you think is it possible? I do not understand at all about electronics so if you think it's possible, please teach me how.

To answer the original question, yes you probably can do what you want with that screen but as has already been pointed out it will not be simple at all. Try searching for other projects that use LCD's in a similar manner. I didn't read through it but this might be a good starting point:
https://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Use-a-Nokia-Color-LCD/
Check the "Related" bar on the right side, it can really help you find what you want.

I've been looking about the projects which is roughly similar at the Instructables but I am still confused because of differences in LCD type and driver. I've searched the internet to find the type and LCD drivers but I still have not found the right answer. last night I found this site: www.lcdhype.de.vu, they create a project just like the idea that I mentioned here but it seems they did not write the tutorials.
thank you for your response :)

Wow, seriously? You need to learn a LOT before you will be able to pull off a project like this. I cant just "teach" you how to do something as complex as this in a message. I suggest you shelf this idea for a dew months, while you learn electronics, and microcontroller programming.
