Hey, i found my old Gateway Solo 2150, which I gutted, and have determined that the monitor might potentially be able to be converted into a monitor for my PC, so a few questions, converting the power for the monitor, how? and pin assignments. how? lol

If I get it to work, Im gonna put it in the side panel, much like a window, should look kinda cool =D

Im uploading some pics now, I think ive got the decoding chip, as well as the power managment module for the monitor, hence why I think this is actually do-able, so id like to just confirm thats indeed what I have, and go from there.

The panel is an LG LP141XA
The card up top, which I believe to be the decoder/encoder is : P/N 6870L-S007B | [content edited] P/N is 2A0530

The other thing I have, which i believe is the power module isnt really labeled, but 5 wires go into a few coils, resistors, capacitors and a wierd thing out to 2 wires which continue to the panel.

Please fogive the crappy pics





The potential Power module




The Decoder
