So recently, my HP-HDX 16t 1200 died but the screen was still good

Anyone have any ideas on how I can hook it up to my computer as a 2nd monitor?
connections on the bottom :yucky:

There are stand alone driver boards you can buy to connect them up, if you can find one that works with your panel.

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

That's pretty cool, but would it be worth it???

 

You could just buy an actual monitor for cheaper that'd give you no fuss

I don't think it would be worth the money or the trouble, you could pick up a good used lcd pc monitor for the price of that circuit board. :no:

Finding the correct LVDS cable and controller board is always the biggest challenge.  However if you can find the parts you need at a price that makes this a worthwhile proposition it is a fun project.

Unless you sell it since i see it's a 1920x1080 panel, and I'm sure at the right price you could find a buyer (maybe someone with that laptop but with the lower resolution screen?) but attaching it as a second monitor would be awkward and likely a hassle.
