Inspiron 8600, no screen, what next to do?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

My Insprion 8600 is working fine, except for the dead screen.

I have been using it like a desktop with a 19" Dell LCD monitor.

It has 2 Gig of  DDR RAM and I have a brand new 7200 rpm 100 Meg drive
ready to go.

I never use it on battery alone, and only travel between 2 houses.

I really do not need a laptop, as it is just the 'engine'.  I use an
external keyboard, etc.

Can I remove the screen entirely and use it like a desktop?

I could cut vent holes, etc. for cooling.

The SFF PC's are almost the same thing.
