I have an old Dell 700m laptop that I'm using for parts and it has a perfectly good display. I was hoping to use this with my RPi to make a digital picture frame, weather radar viewer, and maybe display some other information. But I don't know if it's possible to connect this to the HDMI port or some other way. The connector to the display is a ribbon cable, but I can take the inverter board our and use whatever else is needed.
Is this possible? Or does this have to do with LVDS, DSI, and some other terms I have been reading about but don't know what they mean.
