you can't. anyways not unless you have an EE. i assume all you have are laptop lcds... if you have a desktop lcd screen, those have the control circuits built in.

The video card in a laptop is built into the mainboard and NOT removable. Sorry you can't use a laptop lcd for any other use exsept the laptop it came from unless you want to spend the amount of a brand new lcd with inputs for a driver board for the laptop lcd then no you cannot use the lcd. It would be cheaper and easier for you just to pick up a laptop with a broken hinge on ebay and just use that to make the frame.
