Did I miss the part where he shows how he connected the laptop to the new monitor? Or did he just use the existing monitor port that's usually on the laptop.

Next video idea There are many laptops out there that are just thrown away because of old hardware If a laptop has a perfect keyboard touchpad and display, can we replace its hardware with a raspberry pi 4 to give it a new life

I have a 2003 Sony Laptop that is so ancient it's stuck on Windows XP. Works fine but I want to add a new hard drive to it but noticed the type is like a 16/32 pin connector type. Unsure how many pins but not like modern 2.5" drives. Any ideas how I can get a modern HDD to work with this 17 year old laptop?

As always love your projects and great video. Any idea on how I might put a 3.5"(desktop) hdd to laptop ? I'm wanting to use my old laptop as a nas/media player rig. Do I need a 9v power block for each hdd ? I hear the power blocks are low quality for external hdd and don't want to wipe out my NAS hdd's. I don't think I can find PSU that are that low of watt's. My lap top has 2 ports for small hdd's and 1 or 2 PCIe ports. I'm thinking that I can get a adapter for the pcie to connect a m.2 or ssd for os and use the 2 sata 3 ports for my 3.5 hdd. Will plugging in the data part of sata to hdd mes up the laptop by not having its power part of sata connected ? Any suggestions ?

This is a fabulous video and inspiring idea apart from 2 problems. What was that whole audio solution again? An amplifier plugged into a filter plugged into something else? Most people would not have a clue what yer on about there lol Also the relay thing. Why not just fit a proper toggle switch to power it on and off? I don't get why the relay has to be installed. Great idea, good video, but an awwwwwwwwwful lot of research needed for your average person.

Can you elaborate on how the monitor and machine are switched on at the same time. Do you have one button for machine and one factory on/off button for Monitor? So 2x buttons need pressing? Is there 2x power supplies as well? One is Laptop power supply and 1x monitor power cord (the cord that came with Monitor) So 2x 230V wall plugs
What i have to say. All youve done is made a better. Cheaper. Sexier. Apple I mac. Using a better OS.

I am converting my Acer e5 473 into a DIY desktop so I will not need the integrated keyboard as I can switch it on by connecting last 2 pin (27-28) and I am trying to to solder this 2 pin with a push button so whenever I push the button it'll be switched on now my question is there any problem doing so like this? do I need to add any resistor with push button? or I can just go like this?

Nice project. The power on solution was quite ingenious. I noted you appear to be driving a left hand steering Toyota during the Blinkist advertisement which combined with the accent, I did not expect.

I have a good i5 Lenovo, yes it's get on and because 1 of my stepson had his PLAYSTATION taken off him for misbehaving he broke 1 hinge so now and then part of the screen goes funny so I've been thinking of getting an all in 1 as I now live on my own so WON'T GET DAMAGED, so after looking at this you just may have saved me at least £5/600 so GREAT VIDEO THANKS SCOOBS UK.
