reuse an old laptop screen? Answered

I have some old laptops that do not have the speed needed for today's internet but I would like to 'harvest' their screens which are in excellent shape. Is there a way to separate and rewire so that I could use the screens as second lcd's for my existing computers?

If the laptops still runs there are a few software programs that can let it act as a second monitor. I've never tried them so I can't vouch for either, but check out MaxiVista and ZoneScreen

There is also a program called Synergy that allows you to use one keyboard and mouse for multiple computers, but it doesn't let you share the windows from one computer on the other.
