Its definitely not a fan/temp controller, i seem to remember multiple programmable screens (think EQ, processor usage, etc etc etc).

When i power it up in a system the backlight turns on the first character blinks like a cursor. Windows update installs a driver "FT232R USB UART" which then becomes a Usb serial port. At that point, im left with an unknown usb device, which im assuming is the display controller itself. Can't get beyond that point

The only i found is "2004C" and "0640" on the back of the LCD PCB itself (third picture). Nothing on the first (main) PCB except for "LCB USB interface board"

That main PCB also has the following jumpers: Boot (closed), Clean (Closed) and PGM (all open, 6 pins in a 3x2 grid).
