    I have a destroyed hp pavilion n5425 [ lower portion only].
    The screen is in perfect condition.Have (2) plugs coming out at bottom of screen. I want to convert the LCD screen into a stand alone monitor. Anyone know who does this
    type of work ??

    Yep......complicated it would be, but..... there's always somone
    out there who can do it ??!!??!!
    It has the 2 plugs coming out...figure one is power and of course the other vga.....NP !!
  3. its not that easy
    most lcd's especially in laptops don't use vga they use a digital video input so you would need a decoder/adapter/powersupply interface board........
    used to have a link to company that made them.... if i can find ill link

    heres something, ive got a lcd/controller there for my car computer

    Whats really cool is they sell card/screen combo's

    Let us all know how u go - personally I don't think it can be done - as they LCD display is probably custom made to a specific controller - goodluck

    Hmmmmm....... you wanna know ??????

    The laptop was in the pits here in Daytona during trials
    last month. We were dyno testing new bikes and some
    jerk-off [from Yamacrama] backed out of the staging area
    [clearly marked] and ran over it. We n e v e r leave laps
    on the ground......first rule when testing.We own several
    industrial rolling platforms which house all electronics but
    I had embarked on my own quest to dyno the new 4-stroke
    from a yet (un-named) mfg. Anyhoooo...... I was where i should'nt of been and i learned a very expensive lesson. BUT.... I did obtain some very interesting info in regards to the new generation of 4-strokes...!!!!!! Results of test will be reviewed in some national
    bike mags later this month.

    what i can tell ya......... 221 MPH
