Any Ideas?
Hi all,
I have a really crappy tablet with a broken touch screen. The screen and the rest of the tablet works ok with a mouse, but it is not really economically viable for me to replace the touch screen bit.

Any ideas on what I could do with it? I'm sort of hoping I can use the monitor bit for an extra monitor on my PC, but I don't know how to do this. Is there a converter thingy from VGA/DVI to whatever the connection in on the back of the tablet screen?

Or is there a way I could hook it up as a temp/fan speed monitor on my case? I don't know how to do that either...

Or, could I hook it straight up to a cheapo camera (the one on the tablet), and have it as my "case window"? Still don't have a clue on how to do that either!!!

I have loads of stupid ideas, but no idea on how to make them work. :( Anyway, here's a pic of what I have...

This tablet is the worst kind of cheap, that I have ever had the misfortune of using! Fortunately it is easy to dismantle and stick back together again.

Thanks all,
Brian :)

I like the idea to have it as a side "window" panel, hooked to a cam to show inside of the case... But i have no clue on how to do that! That would be awesome though... Good luck!

what brand tablet is it?
what version android is it running?
might help diagnose what can be done with it

Its a Zenithink cheapass bottom of the range. (Not sure which model - but it's slow, very slow!)

Not sure which version of Android either. Sorry :blush:

I'm also thinking more of the case "window" idea, but I have no idea what I'm doing there... I have managed to remove the tiny camera, and the monitor and ribbon cable, but I have no idea on how to connect them direct with a power source. would it need some kind of controller board?
