Hi everyone, I had an idea and I was wondering if it was possible. I have a laptop that has a broken screen. Instead of spending money to replace the screen, I thought I would take the laptop apart, strip it of the monitor, CD-ROM, keyboard, etc., and make a small, acrylic case that I can then turn into a media server for my home. My friend just gave me his old Blackberry 9700, and I was wondering if I could somehow attach the Blackberry's monitor to the motherboard to display my laptop's GUI. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!

You're better off just connecting an external monitor to the laptop.  The best you could hope for using the Blackberry screen would be to use a remote control program to control the PC.
