how can i get an XGA display to work in a WXGA laptop? Answered
a little while ago, the screen went on my laptop. i didnt have the money to buy a replacement, nor did i have the paypal to get one online.
i came across an old dvd player for a car, the kind that you mount on the interior's roof.
inside, it has a 14.1" XGA LCD display.
i tried simply plugging it in to the display cable, but since its not WXGA the data wires are in different spots on the connector and the display isnt recognized by the laptop.
would rearranging the placement of the wires make it work with my laptop? i know it would be easier to just buy a WXGA display but i have more important things to spend money on.
if i can't do it, id like to at least know why. i'll just keep using an external monitor if it isnt possible.
