Any idea as to what kind of connector the display has to the motherboard? Or how many pins? Trying to tear down the display and see if I can use it as an extra monitor.

It looks like there are 40 pins on the display connector. I’m not sure what it would be called or if it’s any kind of standard. If you do manage to convert the display to an extra monitor, you should definitely let us know though!
