  1. Hi, I have an old dell inspiron laptop screen from a broken laptop and I have heard that you can purchase converters on ebay to turn the screen into a monitor, but I was also wondering if there is anyway to recycle the web camera to use it as some sort of a security camera, I know it would probably be easier to buy a security camera but im bored have alot of spare time and an old laptop screen with a web camera

    Thanks,
    Nathan

    If you're bored and have a lot of spare time, Google is your friend. Technically, yes, you can make it work as a monitor and stand-alone camera. I can't help you though.

    Good luck and have fun!
