    Hi guys,
    I have a little problem here. My old tablet broke. The only thing i could salvage was the monitor. I was wondering is there a way to connect it to my PC or any other way I can use it. Please help. Thanks. :)

    Type of tablet?

    You want to use your tablets old LCD as a PC LCD ?

    The tablet is a Freelander PX2. Actually I want to build a VR headset. But for that I need to connect it to my PC. Is there any way to modify the connection or something? BTW, if it helps I can send a picture of the connection out of the tablet's monitor.

    VR isn't controlled by a PC, it needs all the circuits and sensors in the headset itself, the PC just sends the game to the headset, the headset itself does all the VR work - it's more than just a screen on your head

    You'd need to build your own VR PCB with PC connections, and attach the screen to that

    I guess if you had the right connections you could use it for something like a Raspberry Pi touch screen project, they are pretty cheap (£25)

    Actually if you have good skills, you might have fun trying to use a Raspberry Pi to make your VR headset, they're not exactly powerful, but if they could run the sensors and you know how to program Linux, you could take a look at some existing Pi projects and use it for that
