Hey guys, I am definitely not a modder, but I sure am beginning to become interested with the concenpt. My question for you all is: Is there any way that I can take the LCD out of an old Dell Latitude to use for just about anything? The laptop looks something like this:

Not sure what the exact make and year is, but if that makes a difference I'll definitely look it up. Also, if it is possible, a link to a guide with images would be awesome. Thanks in advance for any responses!

it would be difficult to do, they are many models of lcd's made so there isn't a standard interface...if you know the model# of the lcd you could find out more(you'll have to take it appart to find the model#)

Could you narrow your "just about anything" down a little?

I will automatically assume that you don't want to use it for hammering nails.

There's actually an article up over on THG about how to make your own projector using an LCD display.

Here's the link if it hasn't been mentioned here yet, pretty spiffy.

Or if you can get a hold of one to three more you can make a picture window. I will follow up with the link. :idea:

uhm, the THG guide assumes you have an LCD with a VGA/DVI interface... good luck getting that laptop LCD working with a DVI connector.
