    the solution will be too expensive. first, you need to find the datasheet for your LCD, installed in this laptop. second, you'll need to find analog to LVDS converter board(afaik, it costs about 80-100usd). and 3d, you'll need to make by yourself the custom adaptor from 30-pin LVDS standart interface to your toshiba's LCD.
