    IS it at all possible to attatch my psp lcd straight onto the motherboard of my laptop and use powerstrip to set the settings for the screen which is 480 x 272.

    The thing i am trying to do is have a small screen for my laptop, as i am putting my old compaq presario 1246 laptop onto my scooter, but i dont want a massive screen as this would look rediculous.

    So i am trying to use a psp's lcd instead, but there are little options i have in terms of connecting. I can do it 3 ways.

    I can connect a psp to the laptop and use a psp mod and some software so i can view the screen, but the only problem is that my computer is so old and running on tinyxp rev 09 with only 64mb of ram and it cant handle the program for the computer, so that option is out the window.

    The other way is by buying an lcd controller so that i can attatch it to the vga port on the laptop but this is very very expensive, and would be cheaper going out and buying an in car computer with a screen and extending the cables. So the only other real possible solution is if i can wire it straight onto the laptops motherboard.

    If i get the psp lcd and laptop lcds pinout, would it be possible to do this, keeping in mind that i dont actually need the laptops lcd so if it works that will come off, and i dont mind soldering, im getting pretty good with a solderin iron these days. any help will be great thanks

    No. The PSP screen interface is proprietary and embedded in the PSP custom-made circuits. The laptop uses a proprietary screen interface for the laptop screen that it was designed to work with. You'd need not only the pinouts for both the motherboard and the screen, but probably also write a specific driver for it. Powerstrip assumes a VGA-driven screen so it is useless in this scenario.

    a small screen from halfords for car audio would be alot easier, think they run on RCA AFAIK. but you probably have your mind set on installing the psp/budget whatever.
