Hello moqamar;
Not an easy project. There is no way you can use the laptop LCD as your desktops primary display without jumping through a few hoops first.


This is what a typical LCD screen uses for power and data signal input.


This is what your typical desktop graphics output ports look like.


In anycase, you've left out a LOT of important details needed to answer your question.
Like... the laptop is still working OK, correct?

My advice is to bite the bullet and get a desktop LCD monitor for your desktop PC.

I agree with WR2. It's a serious PITA to even attempt to use a laptop lcd as a display on a desktop. You'll save yourself a lot of time and hassle if you save up and buy a new display. Check out the Dell outlet center if you are tight on cash right now, as they usually have some good deals.
