i have an old (very?) IBM ThinkPad laptop. It worked a few days before, but i decided to take off all the components (harddisk, cd-rom, keyboard) as the laptop was not useful at all. But, it has a shiny 15" monitor, which i would like to connect to a simple VGA port, to put on my wall for monitoring some servers....But as far i know, there aren't any adapters that i could use to connect it to a display port (VGA, DVI, HDMI etc)?

sorry for bad english

It the laptop is usable, you could put a lightweight OS on it and use a remote desktop tool or X windows to run the monitoring software on another PC. Otherwise you are looking to to some hardware hacking –  uSlackr Jun 3 '11 at 12:49
