Moved to GD: Uses for Old notebook LCD

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
What are my options or resources as far as the use of an LCD from a used 2001 PowerBook. I do not want to toss it with the rest of the case, which has been cannabalized for its reusable parts. Can I set it up as a second display? What exactly are my options and what do I need to have in order to take advantage of those options?

    I'd recommend selling it. You could make enough off of it to buy an LCD that already works as a second display Honestly, trying to hack it to use it as a second display is probably going to be a real pain. I wouldn't even know where to begin...

    why don't you make an <a href=""; target="_blank">duo digital frame</a> out of it ?

    good idea but it a 15.2 inch frame might be a little extreme, plus it is just a LCD not the motherboard etc

    Ok, <a href=""; target="_blank">Drinky Crow</a> has just informed me that this topic might be better suited for General Discussion. I mean, technically, an LCD is a piece of computer hardware, even if it is a spare part. And it's not really about fixing anything, more like reviving it. So since it is older, not current hardware.

    Drinky Crow says some peopel don't frequent GB because they don't like to help people. Like Drinky Crow is a saint...
