    I want to use its screen as an External Display (Screen).
    Is there any Possible way to do this? Like Connecting it to another normal Moniter.Just the Screen?

    Any type of Suggestion will be appreciated.

    Thank You... :)

    I'm pretty sure it can't be done.

    It is impossible because a working motherboard is needed for the display to work.

    He meant you need a working motherboard on your iMac, not your laptop. Unless you can disassemble the display circuit, add another input board for your iMac and make a hole for your iMac as if it was regular display, you can't make it work as monitor only.

    You need CPU on iMac to work as well if you want to use your iMac display. See?
