Can I repurpose some parts off of an old compaq laptop? Answered
I had an old laptop (about to throw it away but i stripped it beforehand). It had a cd drive and some other junk i prolly won't use. I want to take the screen and keyboard out and see if I can do anything with em.
Now heres the meat of the question. How, or more importantly can, I take the screen (LG Phillips LP150X08) and wire it to my current laptop with a serial port (serial right? the one i can plug an external screen onto) and use it as an extension of my screen. Part 2 Can I take the keyboard and wire it to my laptop (PS/2 or USB) it has some strange ribbon cable idk what to call it. I have the mobo and all circuitry from the laptop if that means anything. The pic is of the screen with cables coming off of it. The little i shaped connector thing was from the wifi signal ignore it. also the screen has a bunch of circuitry at the top. If you need any more details feel free to ask.
