I do not want to use a functional laptop as a display.
I have a brand new replacement screen for a laptop that I would like to mod into my desktop computer case. I want to connect it to the computer just like any other external display (ie: dvi cable into the video card)
My disconnect is at the conversion from the ribbon cable to dvi/vga/hdmi.
A full howto would be excellent but I'm really just hoping for search terms to lead me to a howto.
