    I have a LCD screen i got out of a IBM think pad, and want to hook it up to my computer. I have a PCI card that i got from a NCR computer that runs a B&W Lcd screen I have. But the new screen has about 70 wires and the old screen has 15 wires on its connector. I got the back light to work off of the controller from the computer pci card so i know there is power getting there. It is just trying to figure out the wire pattern to hook it up. If anyone can help that would be great.
    thanks Justin

    I seriously think your flogging a dead horse without all the dedicated driver chips and voltage rails that the thinkpad used to drive the screen.
    Amend that to impossible if you have no Datasheets for the display.
