Hey I need to know if anyone knows how to embed an LCD screen into a PC. Like what type of screen to get, what the connection type is, and how to get it to work with 15-pin VGA. This is for an iMac style mini pc im building. Thank you!

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "get it to work with 15 pin VGA". Do you just want the monitor to run off a standard vga port? If that is the case, all you have to do is find an LCD small enough that has a vga connection. I would suggest getting a LCD designed for cars, and use a composite video card/connector.

I agree with Bronze. Something like this sounds like it is what you need:

Pull the guts out and mount it in whatever you want. Smile

Please note I have no idea on the quality of this specific item...
