The problem is that there is no lcd controller in the monitor (there is an inverter, but it doesn't work with other lcd controllers). So, you can either use a TMDS controller board or you can wire extensions for a more standard LVDS monitor. This is what I did. Either way you still need to extend the cables for the inverter to backlights (unless you can get the native inverter to work with a different controller). Be careful when lengthening the interver to backlight cables (they are high voltage).
