Default Old laptop monitor


My friend gave me his old laptop monitor since the motherboard isn' working anymore and have taken the hard disk out + the ram cards. I have a desktop computer and I need to use this monitor as a second one. I have seen many toturials on the internet but all of them require the extra laptop box that contains the motherboard and the fan. Is there any way that I can hook up the monitor with my another computer without the extra box.

Unfortunately, no. The DVI signal is very different than what the LCD panel recieves.
