  1. My HP XH555 laptop motherboard went down beyond repair. The display is still good....can I use the display for a monitor with another box?

    Not by any conventional means, unfortunately.

    You would have to find an adapter from VGA to whatever connector your LCD / Inverter requires, which is always extremely proprietary.

    With the technology for in-car LCD, I would think there is some manner or even the future chance of adapting it. I would like to hear more on this, however, I hope to still use mine, even though it broke off on one side of my laptop. Consider the option of finding a replacement base on eBay... They are being sold at modest prices
