Acer Aspire laptop screen wiring / rewiring information

I have a leftover display screen of the Acer Aspire 5115WMLI laptop.

The display screen is fully functional and I was originally able to detach screen without any damage.

I am looking for a solution to take this screen back to use with normal desktop computers. I have not found any specifications for the screen's wiring, but I am making a assumption that the wiring should follow mostly the same basic standards as any other TFT's wiring with exception of the power cord. I have work experience of building computer and network wirings so the process itself will not present any problems.

Can anybody tell me where I can find information of the screen's wiring and if anyone has additional tips how to handle this task of combining regular DVI wiring and Laptop's wiring. External power source, of course, is needed but this will present no problem.

Interesting problem.
Some points:
Should look at the video graphic card out put fo the infromation that you are seeking.

You will need a details techincal drawing manual  to see electrical connections of the Acer. Normal repair manuals usually do not  provide the information that you need. The main problem to resolve is that not all LCD sceeens have the standard connectors.
So your output video will need to match with the current hardware. Some info on LCD hardware at  http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/lcd.htm.
