This is going to be pretty advanced if not impossible to do. I kind of doubt you will find an answer here in brief, although somebody might surprise us with a link or something.

I remember seeing alot of people ask this about a year ago. It is possible, but not very efficient or that cheap. I would sell it on ebay. I sold my sister's for about 150 bucks. :cool:

See if you can find the power specs....I just ripped up my buddies really old thinkpad trying to get the LCD...there was no way to make a vga signal work with it unless I spent a ton of time making a controller for it. The power went through a high voltage inverter too...don't know if that does the same or not though. You'd be in luck if it's 6v, 9v or 12v....or a multiple of either of those.
