Digital Picture Frames & Laptop Screens Question Answered
Hello everyone, I'm new here. I have a question for the more experienced techies here. I have an Acer Aspire 5100 laptop. Now the motherboard is toast, due to a cup of coffee indecent over the laptop. Anyways, I see many instuctables here on converting old laptops into awesome picture frames. So I figured I might as well do something with the screen and whatever parts I have salvaged. I noticed almost every project requires a motherboard. Is there a way to possibly avoid that all together?.. Basically, couldn't I just buy a cheap 7" lcd digital picture frame for $40 that would include a remote, an sd card input and or usb input and some how rewire my 15.4" widescreen lcd monitor from the laptop to work with the brains of the picture frame. Could this be done? Any idea on the wiring needed to be done, or if you might have diagrams that can help me. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated to be honest. Thanks in advance.
