Reuse my broke laptop

Looks like my laptop is breaking up. I want to reuse my LCD screen, my HD and my RAM. Maybe my CD-ROM. Any guides on this? Especially the LCD would be nice to reuse, connect it to a desktop station. All help or links to help is appreciated. Tried to search the internet for reuse of laptop LCD screens, but what I found gave no answers and the questions/answers were several years old.

T2080 is what you need.
It's a Yonah Core - Socket M

There are several makes/models of desktop boards that can use it.

- Some might even accept the laptop RAM [SO-DIMM].
- Make sure you aren't looking at a laptop mobo when you shop.

Your RAM is probably SO-DIMM and useless in standard desktops.

Drives have adapters which are easy enough to find.

The screen conversion could be quite a job and may cost more than just buying a screen.
-
VGA output is Analog.
Some DVI output is Digital, some Analog, some both in one connector.
- LCD input is Digital.

You will need to build an interface.
If your needs include an Analog to Digital conversion it will require some IC chips.
[Desktop LCD screens have these circuits built in. - Laptop screens don't.]

That's what I was saying. - Less expensive just to by a desktop screen to start with.

Fitting a laptop CPU into a desktop depends on what the CPU is. [You didn't say.]
-
There are desktop boards that take laptop CPUs.
- They are usually called MODT => Mobile On Desktop.

Thanks! Does not seem like the shops in the area have Socket M readily available. I will try to ask around if they can get it somewhere.
