Connect Pi to an old laptop screen
My Compaq Presario V6000 laptop just had an HDD failure and I took it apart and salvaged the monitor. I was wondering if I could use the monitor for the RPi, or would I need more power for it? It's an LCD screen but I have no idea how much power it sucks up. I have very little idea what I'm doing with this, and all I can say about wires coming in/out of it is there are two wires, one black and one gray, and there seems to be a ribbon cable also. What kind of connections should I make? What about power supply for the monitor?
