i have a question here...
i cannot find much of anything online about this...
hopefully someone here can help me...
i have 3 ibm thinkpad laptops that are in various
states of being non-functional...
but their displays are in working order.
what i am wondering is could i detach the displays
and make my own flat-panel display?
i have some extra vga cables, and lots of AC
power adapters, most of them are at 12v DC
(which seems what most flat panels need if
they have external power supplies).
i also have a gateway flat-panel that the controller
card apparently shorted out... or something.
two capacitors on the board are blown, and
their guts are spread over the board...
can you get parts like that, or as i suspect,
is the damage more extensive than just
the controller board?
thanks much for your time,
