Introduction: Custom Monitor

About: I am a person with full of positive attitude. My fields of interest are Web Technology, Computer Graphics, Robotics, and Electronics. I have worked on lots of real-time project. I have a small workshop where...

Hi Geeks, Today I am here with my custom monitor build. I salvaged the LCD from an old laptop and added a display driver board. Mounted everything on aluminium frame. I used revits on joints.

Step 1: The Screen

Screen was salvaged from an old laptop. And I added a LCD driver board to operate the LCD screen.

Step 2: The Frame

I used Aluminium for frame and ACP sheet for electronics. Following shapes of aluminium strips are used.
1. 1/2" Square Pipe
2. L strip
3. T strip
4. straight strip

I also used 4 10mm Acrylic pieces as screen holder. I cut 5mm slotes on them.

Step 3: Conclusion

Result is pretty awesome and useble.

    Yes, you only need the working screen of any laptop and you have to buy compatible LCD Driver board (you have to ask vendor for the compatibility before purchase).

    I have everything up to the point of getting the aluminum parts. The only issue would be actually setting it up...
