Title
How to Identify The Make & Model Of TheAn iMac's Screen, In Order To Buy The Correct Video Driver Board
Introduction
'''This guide is a prerequisite for the guide "[guide|40567|How To Convert An iMac Into An External Monitor]"'''
== Background ==
The question ''"Can I mod my older iMac to use it as a monitor?"'' has been asked on iFixit and many other internet forums for years. This guide attempts to teach others how to complete the first phase of such a project.
In summary, to convert an iMac to work as an external monitor, one must:
* Completely teardown the iMac, removing everything.
* '''Install a video control board, new inverter, and new power supply''' into the empty iMac shell.
* install new video-in ports on the exterior case.
* Re-install the screen, reassemble the iMac case.
Following this guide will allow you to purchase the correct '''video control board, new inverter, and new power supply''' for your iMac, and will prepare you to complete a full iMac external monitor conversion.
Steps 1-14 are pulled from a standard iFixit guide. Steps 15-17 are original to this guide. If you have an iMac that is a different model than the one shown in steps 1-14, '''this guide can still be used.'''
Conclusion
== What To Do Next ==
'''Congratulations!''' You have successfully identified your iMac's screen make and model, and ordered a control board and (optionally) a power supply for it.
'''If you are doing this guide as part of the "[https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/How+To+Convert+An+iMac+Into+An+External+Monitor/guide|40567|How To Convert An iMac Into An External Monitor]" guide, return to that guide now.'''
