Making a cheap cheap projector? Answered
I know that it's possible to crack open a "oldish" laptop or even a new one and remove the shielding around the lcd itself and shine a special light through it that's bright enough where you essentially make a lcd projector. I have a old toshiba satellite 2520cds with specs like a 2mb vid card, 96mb of ram, 4 gig hd, and a 300mhz amd processor. It runs somewhat fast, even for windows xp that I installed on it and plan to upgrade the hd down the road, but I wonder, would I be able to do the same thing with this? The screen is an older lcd that has that "motion blur" effect to it, so would it be worth it? Is there some way I could connect this lcd to my video card on my pentium 2 I have that would allow me to actually watch movies?
