I believe laptop monitors are proprietary... meaning they only have connectors for one particular motherboard. Perhaps you may be able to get around this by cutting the connector off... then attaching a CRT or DVI connector... but you would need to know what each wire is on the original connector and hook the wires to the new connector accordingly. Could end up being a pain staking operation if there's a possibility of success.

either that or maybe he broke a rule. sometimes they ban u for a week, other times they reset yer post count to zero. They did that to Yondums once cause he was spamming, or at least posting irrevelant stuff that wasnt helping others so they reset his count. He made a donation(not sure of amount) and they were nice enough to give his post count back :) anyways you can get a desktop 15" LCD for $300 now. not worth the time hacking a 12" notebook LCD. just sell it for a hundred and get a 17" CRT :)
