Make something useful out of old laptop lcd screen

Postby logepoge1 » July 17th, 2012, 12:03 am

I have an lcd screen that came off of my old nonworking dell inspiron 1525 that is about 5 years old. I am scrapping all of the parts but I was wondering if there was a way I could make an xbox monitor out of it

You will probably need an LVDS board, look on eBay for LVDS and choose one that has the inputs you need.

Love the self reference! I just ordered one myself for a netbook screen. Print a case, add a panda board, baby you got a stew going!

njytouch I just want to say thank you so much for your reply :D :D :D I recently acquired a Sabre Lite http://boundarydevices.com/products/sabre-lite-imx6-sbc/ for dirt cheap and I was looking for a cheap way to connect a display to it as I have quite a few old laptops hanging around. Your links are helpful but also a little confusing. The Sabre Lite has a 20 pin LVDS connection on it as well as HDMI and I'm wondering what hardware I would actually need to drive a smaller screen like 7-8" touch screen. If you look at the boundary devices site (under compatable products) they want $225 for a 7" touch screen which is way too much money as I only paid $100 for the board. I would much rather spend $50 for a setup from your e-bay store, and any other advice would be wonderful. Currently I have some cables on order to hook up the Sabre to a Motorola Lapdock but I will need a smaller form factor soon to complete my senior project.
