I you have a large enough intact part you can make a screen projector out of it. I can help more with that.

You still need the drivers and power supply from the laptop to do this which is the same problem you face turning it into a regular screen.

Nope.

Everything that drives the LCD is in the laptop, not in the LCD.

You would be money ahead to sell it somewhere like E bay and then just buy a new monitor.

There are kits available to do this, but they cost almost as much as a brand new screen with stand, bezel and power supply.
