I was searching Ebay for an LCD inverter to connect a naked laptop LCD to a VGA port... for science.
Some things I know, some things I don't. But for the sake of simplicity and ADHD... ill spare you the essay. :)
Simply put: Im trying to take a laptop LCD and turn it into a VGA display
I know there are different connectors in laptop LCDs, thus why they are not interchangable. Are they different [industrial standards] or are they all [unique proprietary connectors]?
- 1 lamp, 2 lamp 3 or 4? Lamp as in backlight?
The Following is for the sake of Google searchers benefit, in case they are looking to do something similar and need help.
-- More specifically it is a Dell Inspiron 2305 All in One touchscreen "thingy" that I am trying to convert into a touch screen monitor (with all peripherals included: usb, speakers, camera, IR, etc...) Through a KVM switch. (So I can use it as a standalone when needed)
I learned how to use the speakers, camera, digitizer (usb cables) But now I need a way to connect the screen.
I dont know if im allowed to post the link, but the item im trying to learn more about is listed on Ebay as...
"(HDMI+DVI+VGA) Driver LVDS Inverter Kit - Convert a Bare Laptop LCD into Monitor"
