Google the part number of the screen and look for a driver board. Preferable one with an HDMI input.

if was inside dvd player then u have to look for that dvd and see what kind of screen it have,
If is something like generic chinesse monitor then probably can accept the same drivers for saintsmart or waveshare.

you could try downloading the images from these providers and after install to rpi, try to change the output to your screen

//go to directory
cd LCD-show
//then execute the command
sudo ./LCD-7inch
//don't remember but must be a script for the screen of your inches.
