Run a screen from motherboard

Post by gen2fish » Tue Jul 05, 2011 2:34 pm

How crazy is this? I have a screen that runs off of two +5v and if I buy a universal inverter, I could run that off of +12v. I have the driver board for the screen and am curious if this is workable. Can I power this off of the XDK and southbridge header (J1D2 and J2D1 respectively)? Or am I nuts? I would use the power black that came with the lcd screen however it's a monster and is setup rather strange so even if I made cut it in two, it's too large. Or should I just get a new screen. Thanks for any information you can give me.
