How do I connect my laptop dell D830 motherboard directly with pc lcd because my laptop screen is damaged

Unfortunately if the CMOS battery dies and wipes the BIOS clean, the AC power on from the push button will no longer work. It would require the power button from the original keyboard in order to be powered on again. I can't think of a way around this without using the original keyboard but it is a problem that will occur, it's just a matter of time.

I did something similar when my Toshiba laptop stopped working a few years ago, but since my screen wasn't totally unusable I just changed the settings of display preference while booting to VGA first, then disconnected the laptop's display and connected the VGA to an old monitor I had, it saved me from buying a new one for at least 3 years haha, this channel is so good!.

My laptop has a bios setting for booting when you open the lid, so you could maybe use the lid sensor as a power button!

"for the money invested in it" ... yeah, that was my question. Wouldn't it be cheaper to just melt down the laptop (and making a bird bath out of it) then just buying a second hand all-in-one PC?

I was about to say all my damaged laptops are older generation back when DDR2 or DDR3 memory were the norm (so that gives you an idea of the cpu class as well), so it won't be any use to turn it into a PC, but I see yours is a more modern i5 probably with much better specs that are still worth making this little project. Great idea!
