I have an old Dell Inspiron E1505 and the LCD screen doesn't work anymore. But I only use this old laptop to hook up to the TV with a VGA cable and watch DVD's and streaming Netflix. (So it would make no sense to replace the laptop's LCD, because I don't use it). Is it possible to remove the entire screen and screen casing of my laptop, at the hinges, so I would essentially have what looks like a chunky keyboard + mousepad? Would the motherboard get confused about the missing screen?
I have an intermediate knowledge of software, and a basic knowledge of hardware, but I've never been inside a computer. A ) Is this possible? And if so, could I get some instruction on how to not mess up this operation? and B ) Would this be above my skill level?
