Looking for Information on How Laptop Peripherals Work/Connect.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I currently have a thread standing in the laptop forum but seems not too many people are tech savvy enough to answer my question. In any rate, without getting or looking for details on the rest of the planned build mod, I have some ideas floating around.

In a Nut shell, this build will be a laptop case (I.E, Keyboard, Screen, etc fitted to a custom case. There are a lot of other things I have planned for the build but first and foremost I need to figure out laptop peripherals, I.E once again Primarily screen and keyboard, I don't care as much for the mouse as I would likely have an actual mouse with me, but if integrability that is great to know to and how.

Now that being said,

I'm looking for how the connection on a Laptop screen works, I.E what type of connection is used and can it be rewired into a regular connection, DVI, etc. (Also voltage information wouldn't hurt for the rest but that'll come later)

I'm also looking for how the Keyboard connects to the computer, and how that can be integrated into a normal system.



These will be integrated through if extreme circumstances into a M-ATX board of which the rest of the build I remain to release =P

Some laptop motherboards have a VGA output, which if you plugged in a vga connected monitor into the motherboard, it would provide output to the VGA connector/monitor, instead of your main laptop screen, you would press F5 (I think) to switch to it. Otherwise NO, you will need to use the original connector to the laptop screen on a laptop motherboard, sorry, just way to difficult and time consuming to covert.

Obviously you will need a laptop motherboard with VGA output, but what you are doing is like trying to re-invent the wheel...

Why not just make a small form factor PC?

Or you could just buy a barebones laptop and be done with it.

Its a case mod project, I'm #1 not looking for hooking this up to a laptop monitor.

If I had the choice I wouldn't explain what I'm doing to anyone since it seems no one can grasp the basic concept.

I AM not building a laptop.


I just want to know how the laptop screen makes it connection through the strip, and if it can be rewired into a conventional, or converted into one, DVI, etc.

Likewise with the keyboard, if that can be rewired into a conventional connection, etc.


Yes I'm trying to reinvent the wheel.

Go read the whitepapers on the standards... easy enough. You could of answered all your questions with a little research.

I've done all the research that I've tried so far, I'm not an electrical engineer, I don't know where to look etc, googling for that sort of information hasn't yeilded anything other then **** about connecting a monitor to laptops.

Well I'm still a little unclear on what you're asking but for lots of people doing things at least similar to what you're describing there's the Ben Heck forums. They're always doing that VGA-from-motherboard/integrated inputs stuff for console-to-portable conversions...maybe it could help...

ty I'll surf around on there and see if they have any tips on connection type that Laptop LCD uses.

On the extremely rare chance anyone else is looking for this information, thought I doubt it I found the answer.

Yes you can.

There are LCD controller boards you can get custom ordered and made to work with the specific Laptop LCD band that runs down into a DVI out that simply plugs into your graphics card.

Example I was given: Compatible R.RM5251 LCD Controller Board Kit with DVI

Or the thread it self from Ben Heck.


Thanks again for the information, it is very crucial in the success of this build, I have decided to hold off on the true hardware component of the build till Haswell.
