So I Picked up one of these cheap 21:9 monitors; back when the tek did its review on them.
Its been used as a home monitor for my home desktop all its life.
I recently got a new monitor for home and its been sitting for a month.
Figured I would bring it into work, because at the office they only have standard 24's.
Well I ran into the issue that my laptops docking station DVI port would not drive the monitor.
So I came up with a plan.
Lets find a new controller for it. Its an LG panel right?
So I took it apart to verify the panel model.

I searched and found the following LG listing that was same model diffrent rev.
I was really wanting to find a monitor with lots of inputs. Most LGs where appearing to only have HDMI.
So I stated looking at dell 21:9s matching up close panel specs.
The dell monitors come with almost any input you could want.
I found the Dell U2913WM to be very close.
After some google searching I found what I was looking for.
This guy had taken his apart and took pictures of the panel.
So now I know this model should work with a controller swap.
Now off to ebay for a broken monitor (I always wondered who buy's broken screen monitors)
Now I know.
50 bucks shipped on ebay, and by Friday I should have this bad boy working.
or know that I have wasted 50 bucks.
