- What is a matrix that you connect to a laptop?
- What port in your laptop do you connect it to?

I do not connect any screen to the laptop, I just have an old one from a broken laptop and I want to check if it works

I'll guess by matrix you mean the LCD panel.

Some called that a matrix. Few are compatible. Basically you see if the old and new are compatible. If not, too expensive to test.

Yes I mean LCD panel.

You have the Chicken and the Egg problem.

You won't know if it works until it's plugged into a suitable control system.

Frankly such endeavors are rarely done here with display prices here diving below 99USD.

...in the movie that NEO fought the Matrix and won.

I have no idea of what matrix the OP is referring to.

It's not a oft used term.

Testing these is done with a compatible laptop because anything else costs more than the panels sell for.
