I need to keep the set-up clean. I did my homework and came across Connect Pi to an old laptop screen and Like a projector can I use raspberry pi to VGA port in my Laptop and both of them did not exactly solve the problem. The first one solved the problem by dismantling, and taking the screen off, the laptop and the second one isn't relevant since it gives no direct answers whether this could be accomplished via the HDMI converter.
The significant point here is to take power from the generic power adapter of the laptop to power up the screen and to use the computing power of RPi without having to dismantle the screen. Are there any converters which would easily do the job? To keep it more clean, here's the Netbook which I am using and needs to be operated.
I would appreciate if working details are mentioned, like:
- Possibility of getting this worked - a 'yes' or a 'no'
- List items to be bought - connectors, converters, cables, etc.
Also to keep it more precise, the hard disk failed, which is why I wanted to turn on the laptop screen, thereby saving additional storage costs since I own portable hard disks and could use them, after having them turned on via RPi.
