don't quote me on this one but you might well be able to use the screen e.g. mounting it into your case side panal somehow,someone had a faq with a suggestion like that i think,i'll have alook around and see i can find it again

but i'm not sure how you'd connect it,as i'm no wiz with electronics

its extremely hard to do - laptops like digital signals in but graphics cards output analog. You can by converter kits for $200

Dont let this put you off - keep on trying
