Coo, this question is asked a lot!

The short answer is you can't, because the LCD driver is integrated on
the motherboard of the laptop.

Notebooks typically use an LVDS interface between display and
motherboard. Graphics cards use TMDS in their DVI interfaces. While
these standards may appear superficially similar, they are not
