How to convert a mini laptop (Netbook) with a broken screen to a workable instrument Answered
I have a Gigabyte Q1000C which recently fell and busted the monitor. The machine still works fine, other than the battery no longer charging. I would like to convert it into my "writing" machine (I write short stories as a hobby), almost like a typewriter with a screen.
The main idea is to purchase a smaller second-hand LCD PC monitor and gutting it to fit into a custom built enclosure, I also need to be able to convert it to a direct-power sourced instrument, thereby bypassing the battery, which I have no clue how to accomplish, my electrical skills are dangerous at best.
If there is anyone who could help me with the above-mentioned ideas, I'd be very grateful.
The design ideas are either a retro feel, steampunk or cyberpunk vibe.
