I'm working in an "All-in-One pc" project. For that, I have an old Dell laptop (which only works with DC adapter) and a 21" LG monitor. My question is: How can I connect the LCD panel directly on the motherboard? I'm looking for a cable pinout that I could use. With that I hope I could:

-Save the HDMI port of the motherboard for a second monitor when necessary.

-Eliminate circuit boards and save space

-Have only one ON/OFF button

-Have only one DC adapter.

This is the Dell motherboard DNE40-CR datasheet DNE40 LCD1 connector pinout And the LCD panel LM230WF3 datasheet LG panel connector pinout

I need some help reading those pinouts, but I already know the motherboard has more connections than I need, so we could ignore webcam and microphone. I noticed some differences, the LCD requires 5V and the motherboard supply only 3,3V. Maybe a jumper though USB +5V could fix it?
