    I've salvaged a lcd from a toshiba compy with the part number LG150x05 (A2) :wiggle:. Anyone know what graphics controller and what power supply to use with it? Also, since this would be my first laptop->desktop lcd conversion, I would appreciate any and all info that might be helpful.

    Its usually cheaper to just buy a new desktop lcd then it is to buy the converter and power supply for it.

    :werd: good luck getting it to work, as there is almost no way of doing it, every LCD converter is different, so your going to need a converter for the spefic LCD, and chances are there is no one that makes it.

    I remember there was this one laptop LCD that coult take analog input though. Look for that model's pinout on the web and see if there is an analog-in wire.
