Repurposing a Laptop screen as a Universal Test Display Rig

Introduction

Although I am fairly well set up for working with multiple computers on a single monitor (using a 4 channel KVM switch), from time to time I have an extra equipment, be it a PC, laptop, or any other consumer electronic device that needs a display to interact with it, that is always a pain to hook up with a monitor or TV for trouble shooting. As I recently had success experimenting with LCD panels salvaged from old laptops/TVs, I decided to make a permanent test rig for such occasions.
