make it a desktop

RE:Lenovo Edge 2-1580 QF 80QF0004US Can I disconnect and remove the screen lcd, digitizer, camera and anything connecting the screen and  top lid to the keyboard section and just use the keyboard and guts underneath as a desktop?  I use as a desktop now but with the screen being broke I would like to just take it off entirely for safety.  I don’t feel worth it to try and fix.

Interesting you should raise this topic as I had done what you are asking about with an Asus U36JC laptop (not touchscreen though) which worked fine until a couple of days ago I found out I could not get a BIOS displayed on the external monitor. Trying to use function keys (ie F5) to switch the display over to the external monitor didn't work. It was late, I was tired and decided to leave further exploration until a later time, of which so far, has not presented itself yet; sometimes that nasty old trait of procrastination gets in the way of good intentions. lol! Might want to check out your unit for similar problem. :-)


No idea what BIOS is or how to check-I do understand procrastination however. Looking forward to learn if you get your asus up and running with external monitor as desktop without the screen attachments to asus


Without getting into a lot of detail, the BIOS is accessible directly from the computer boot screen and is used for saving, changing, viewing information about your computer. The computer boot up screen will usually show which key combination(s)to press to access it though for some you may have to refer to the Owners/Users Manual for the details.

As far as the Asus is concerned, all I did was totally disconnect the monitor from the main deck (leaving all connecting cables intact and insulated with electrical tape if required. Hazy on the exact details now as I did it over a year ago now.) This particular model has both VGA and HDMI output connectors so either formats can be used to use an external viewing monitor instead of the computer's main screen. When i installed a Linux based operating system on the computer, the main screen, (which was heavily cracked but parts of it were still displaying content), was still attached. Once the operating system was fully installed I changed the options/preferences to use an external monitor as the main monitor. This worked just fine after totally disconnecting the main screen from the computer. The problem now is that I need to "log" into the BIOS to change some setting(s), the most prevalent being to be able to boot from a USB stick which for some reason is now disabled even though it was enabled when I installed the Linux OS from a USB stick. As mentioned above, it would appear, as of the information I know about, the BIOS contents will only be displayed on the computer's main screen for some reason and will not automatically transfer to being displayed on an external monitor at boot time. It would seem right now that I will have to temporally reassemble and reattach the broken main screen to view the BIOS so that I can make any necessary changes. Just something you may want to consider with respect to your own endevours; as I am not familiar with your unit I can’t really comment whether your unit may or may not be able to automatically switch the BIOS display to an external monitor once the main screen is removed. Have a good one! :-)

@missyspirit yes you can. You do realize that you will lose some of the aesthetics and by removing the top cover by the keyboard you may get more dust inside your laptop. It may also alter the airflow inside your laptop so keep an eye on the temps. To work on your Lenovo you can download the maintenance manual from here or use the guides as posted here Lenovo Edge 2-1580 Repair

I plan to leave the keyboard on the machine-I would just remove the lcd back cover-the lcd touch screen and the camera which is on the lcd back cover. Maybe I am naming parts wrong-

Basically I want to open the laptop like any other laptop- then disconnect and remove the screen section leaving me with just the other half of the laptop which would be the bottom guts and keyboard . I just don’t know if the machine will still work with an external monitor after I remove the lcd screen half...


@missyspirit there is no reason why it wouldn't. you may have to install or uninstall some drivers since your computer maybe "looking" for things but essentially there is no reason why it should not work
