ati radeon mobility 7500 features,

seems it supports dual display in various formats, notably with the ibook its one 24-bit SVGA to the tft, judging by further googling there should be no problems connecting a vga monitor to a svga port, as this is the norm and is often done..

just need the pinouts now from the area where the lcd connects i imagine.
if at all possible could anyone in the uk send old lcd monitor connection cables that will connect to my logic board in the manner my lcd does - butcher them off the faulty lcd - theres a pint in it if u do!!

- this means i can build a custom lead + share any findings back with the community
