Hey! I have a monitor that I ripped out of an iMac Core 2 Duo. It's connected to a small circuit board, which has got four wires sticking out of it. There are also two connector spots on the circuit board. How do I learn what to do in order to get this working as a second monitor? Has it been done before?

 

Thanks!

You might be able to use that depending on how much of the imac you have. Basically you are going to run into the same problem that people run into when they try and use laptop screen as a monitor.

Ah. Actually I don't have any such thing as a port. I've got some cut wires to connect to. The entire monitor has been taken out of the iMac and the logic board trashed.
