Can I turn my broken dv9000 (faulty gpu) laptop's screen into a desktop monitor?

I have a hp DV9000 laptop with the faulty nvidia graphics chip. I have played around with "repairing" it for a little while, but I have replaced the laptop with a new one. The screen is still good and its 1680x1050... I don't know what the cable that plugs into the mobo is called, but is there an adapter I could buy to convert it to vga? I realize I would still need to run power to the screen, so would the ac adapter work for that?

Any help would be great..... thanks

Thanks for your reply...

I looked at the link, but that method requires a working laptop. The gpu on my dv9000 has failed so that way wont work for me.
