Default A monitor solution?

This is a continuation of the other LCD monitor help.Well i actually have 2 monitors, 1's screen is broke and 2nd, a defection with a board or something. Well i wonder if i can switch both things like 1st and 2nd making a working monitor. Even if i did it perfectly would it still work? Thanks....(Switching the defected mother boards screen with the other smashed one is what i meaning if it would work if i did it perfect)

Sure, I don't see why not. As long as the smashed one didn't get the board damaged I would say go for it (assuming they are the same monitors).

if they are the same monitors I guess it would work.

just be wary of the power supply. even when unplugged they can zap you.

Then i highly doubt this is gunna work. The two monitors will have been built using different plans and so the parts wont correspond with each other.
