Replace my Laptop LCD screen with "Another brand LCD screen

Q: Replace my Laptop LCD screen with "Another brand LCD screen

Hello.
I have an Acer Aspire AS3810TZ-4806 and have owned it for a good 4-5 years. I've had some LCD issues for a couple years now where the light flickers, have big black spots and FINALLY the screen gave out. it's almost completly dark now. You can faintly see images. After some research on replacement, a compatible Acer LCD on Ebay would run roughly $60. I've concluded that It's either the bulb inside (CCFL??) or the inverter that may have an issue, but I have no way of testing which is broken since I have no spare LCD screen to test or a little tester device.

What I've discovered was my lcd screen's model # was : B133XW01 V2 . After googling this model # and a search on Ebay, I've discovered a Dell Latitude 13 or a couple other Dell brands share this same model, the difference is it says " V1." Im assuming version 1 or something, and the one I have is V2. The connectors look the same. I feel like it might work. What do you think? Below are a couple Ebay links im looking at, Does that "H/W" code matter?
Any advice?

Preferred Solution: Replace my Laptop LCD screen with "Another brand LCD screen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

It's not the size of the display screen, these are all fairly identical. It is the connector socket and the rail screw positions that will bite you.

I suggest finding an exact replacement. If you can't find one on eBay then you certainly will at a store like this one:

Hey guys i have a question i have a Philips LCD PC Monitor where the board is fried its a 23 inch,
I also have a Samsung 19 inch same year but only 19 inch but all the wiring color codes are a exact match.
Can i use my 23 inch with the Samsung, or will it fry my board.
I can imagine some issues, I SHOULD NOT USE THE BUTTONS ON THE OLD SAMSUNG SCREEN because they do different things , they have 3 things in common wiring colorcodes are a perfect match power button and the "auto feature BUT not located the same place on the side of screen only the power button match" so i should prob not use the auto features or menu because even though both screens have that feature, my guess is that because they are not in the same place it might send the wrong signal
My Samsung has
Power menu up down auto buttons
Phillips
Power up menu down turbo auto buttons on the side.
But i really just need the power button everything else Windows controls
BUT the size might be a problem if Windows does not control all of it because my samsung is a 19 inch and if i replace screen with a 23 inch well my Samsung MB still thinks its a 19 Inch
So can i use my 23 phillips 23 inch with my samsung 19 inch "replacing the 19 inch with the 23.)
The reason i want to do this is because i get bigger and my Phillips has a much better Image.
I was totally amazed ever color code and screen fittings are a match, they are both made in Taiwan same year.
So i am guessing same factory made it.

Well found some bad news even though it seems most Screen MB's are Samsung the screen Ribbon's might be different all though it fits perfectly damn Shame had hoped it would work so unless someone has done this with susses i better not try or i will end up with a fried Samsung MB.
So i better put my old 19 inch back in the Screen Case what a shame.

So today my brother destroyed my dad's laptop's screen and I was blamed for his ridiculous anger problems

The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 14z Ultrabook.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend someplace or website to get a new screen because it has a crack in it and nothing will show up on it I would like to know if there are any risks or dangers of replacing it.

I know the laptop itself works just fine because I plugged it up to a different monitor and I was able to use it like normal.

If you need more information I am just fine with telling.

Thank you!

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to read my problem. A few hours ago, I received my HP Pavilion 15-au007ni from a local store in ZA. We started the transaction for it a week ago but due to the fact that it was out of stock, it had to still be ordered into the store. So when I finally did get it from the store today, it was still sealed and totally brand new. I came home to set it up right away, and the first thing I noticed was that it makes a strange "crackling" noise. It's not very loud but it concerned me since the only noise my old laptop regularly made was the noise of the fan. I ignored it, thinking that maybe it's just because the machine is very new and still "acclimatizing" or something to that effect. But then the screen glitches started. It's not as bad as the ones I saw online when I tried to google it. It's also not a continuous glitch nor does it last very long. It only happens every 10 minutes or so or just before the screen goes into sleep mode or after you take it out of sleep mode. Just flickers of horizontal static-y lines that distorts the screen for a few seconds and then stops. All I have done with the laptop is go through the windows set-up and tried to download Chrome (stopped it because the glitches concerned me too much). Other than that, I've done nothing to it. Although, I did note that the glitches mostly just happens when the laptop is running on battery. I'm not sure if the glitches occur when it's plugged in ...

===========
You should contact the manufactuer of the computer before you take the laptop back. Since the laptop is only a few weeks old, it's under warranty and the manufacture's Customer Service Department should be able to help you.

If you don't get any satisfaction from the Customer Service Department then take it back to the store and either damand a refund or an exchange for a new laptop.

I just bought an HP Pavillion dv6-7014nr and I love it! Except for one thing. I upgraded to the 1920x1080 screen to get the HD quality and the matte display. Everything on this screen is so tiny, its uncomfortable to read. I have increased the text size in windows to 130% dpi and I have downloaded and extension in Firefox to keep the zoom level I like. My problem is that with this increased DPI setting, the text in programs, such as iTunes gets cut off or overlaps. I was just wondering if there was a solution to this problem, or is it just something I have to live with?
Thanks very much!

Dan

A:[SOLVED] 1920x1080 screen resolution on a 15.6" Laptop Screen

1920x1080 doesn't suit everyone on a 15.6" screen as it's really more suited to large-screen external monitors (20" or more). It's big plus of course is that it gives you much more screen space to use for multi-tasking or using apps which have many palettes (like Photoshop). Personally I think 1920x1080 is way too high for the average laptop screen size unless you've got perfect eyesight.

If you don't need all that space, you may find that setting a lower resolution (and changing DPI & zoom levels back to their defaults) is more in line with what your eyesight can deal with. It probably won't look as pin-sharp as the native 1920x1080 resolution though, but at least you shouldn't get some app Windows extending beyond the screen edges.

Hi, I have a gateway solo 2500 laptop (12.1'' tft screen)

The thing stopped working 3 yrs ago. Power on, cd spins, hd spins, fan spins.. nothing after that. Wasn't about to pay gateway $400 to fix it. Recently figured it out.. I just needed to reseat the processor. Problem is that in the last 3 years somewhere the screen got cracked so bad that I can only see a small fraction of it, though external monitor is fine.

So I purchased another Gateway Solo 2500 with a 12.1'' tft screen and I want to swap the screens (the other one I bought is a 266mhz MMX processor whereas mine is a celeron 400) so how do I do that.

Has anyone done this? Are there any things I should watch out for, is it super simple or is this something to leave to the pros?

I'm great with desktops, not so experienced with laptops.

thanks... closetgeekla
 

A:How to replace laptop screen (Gateway 2500)

Are the cases identical ? If they are, then you need to start taking the unit apart until you get down to removing the Lid's hinges. There should be a cable that goes from the MOBO to the display. Unplug it and swap lids.

This is based on my experience disassembling my HP laptop to fix the connection cable, which was being pinched by the hinge.

Of course the other possibility is to swap the newer MOBO and drives into the other case's base unit.

 I just ordered and received what I thought would be the laptop of my daughter's dreams, with all the upgrades available. She is an artist, using many digital art programs.  I ordered the highest resolution 1920x1080, thinking it would be an asset for her, but it was a terrible mistake. It has made things too small for her to use effectively, and we we go in and try to change the resolution on the unit using the tools available to reduce it to 1366x768,  things still do not look right because the system is optimized for 1920x1080. Things then look the correct size but are blurry to her, not as crisp. Is there any way to get this corrected to reduce the system's optimized resolution to 1366x768 without returning it and ordering an entire new laptop?  This was a custom build, and HP charges a surcharge of 15% on returns for this purchase.  

A:Ordered wrong screen resolution on brand new laptop

Hi, Since she is an artist, the 1366 x 768 resolution won't help. There are MANY 15" laptops now have 3840 x 2160 resolution, 1920 x 1080 is not enough. Anyway, my option is to give her a good FHD 24" to 27" monitor, she will work at home with the monitor and use laptop screen when away. Beleive me, artists like higher resolution screens. And last option: swap it. Regards.

I ran a disk cleaner, defragment (which said only 3 % fragmented). I also ran 2 virus scans. both Microsoft Essentials, as well as Malwarebyes cleaner..

last night again I was lagging horribly.. when I checked My Computer. it showed my C Drive was in the Red, and veryyyy near full. Yet my Partitioned D drive showed near empty..

This morning I rebooted the laptop.. as soon as it powered up to show *Asus*. from that screen it goes to a black screen, with a dash. that's all I get..

Ive tried to remove the battery and unplug.. nothing seems to help.. im at a loss. Im hoping to get into the lappy to I can transfer and delete filoes from C drive..

Any help would be greatly appreciated..

?? Is My laptop dead in the water?? or can I fix this..

Tx for your help in advance

I have DELL Inspiron Laptop 1720 and it caused a Blue Screen of Death error within first couple of hours. I begugged the error in the two files that I am uploading. The first one says that it is because of some driver error and the second one which was debugged from Memory.dmp of about 300 MegaBytes also says in the middle that it was due to Memory Corruption as well.

Could someone please explain it more clearly to me which file is right and do I still need to check my Memory because the laptop is still brand new.

debuglog.txt has been debugged from mini040808-01.dmp of size 135K from windows\minidump folder.

debuglogmemorydmp.txt has been debugged from \windows\memory.dmp of size 300 MegaBytes.


Both of the \windows\minidump and \windows\memory.dmp belong to the same Blue Screen of Death Error.

The Blue screen of death was very quick and I did not get any chance to note down anything at all thats why I debugged them.

Then again yesterday I got one more Blue Screen of Death Error while restarting Windows and it was " IO System Verification error in HIDCLASS.SYS (WDM DRIVER ERROR 220) (HIDCLASS.SYS + 2484 at 909Af484).

Please help if the Blue Screens of Death belong to software or hardware problems.

Other than those two Blue Screens of Death the system has been working absolutely fantastic and I have not received any other error messages within the Windows Vista ever since I bought it on 08 April 2008.

Do you guys think it is serious issue wit... Read more

I am attaching the zipped original minidump file. I am still curious to know the reason for that blue screen of death please.

If I can, I will try to get everything out of Dell Australia's Total Satisfaction Policy to avoid any hassles in future with the hardware problems with this laptop.

I'm trying to fix my brother's computer after he opened a trojan attached to an email. The email was the one saying your credit card had been charged for airline tickets.

The computer is a Dell Dimension 3100 running Windows XP SP2.

The first problem is that after normal login there is a blue screen with a yellow window in the window with the message

"Warning! Spyware detected on your computer! Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer."

There are no icons visible. The only action I can perform is CTL-ALT-DEL to bring up the Windows Task Manager. I told my brother to start in Safe Mode from which he scanned the computer using AVG Free Edition which was installed before the infection. This did not fix the problem.

Starting Safe Mode I now get a black screen with Safe Mode in the corners and the operating system name at top. The blue login screen then comes up with Administrator and my brothers account. I click on Administrator and I get the same black screen as before with Safe Mode in the corners and the writing at top. My brothers account does the same. There are no icons or Start button visible.

Again, the only program I can bring up is the Windows Task Manager. Using that, I managed to install and run SmitfraudFix which was given as a solution to "Spyware detected" screen. After rebooting this did not fix the problem. I also installed SpyHunter 3.5.11 which found Zlob.Trojan, Rogue.AntivirusXP 2008 plus some other ... Read more

Hi, I've had my laptop since December, got it used but it was 100% in working order. Out of nowhere, this morning I turned it on to email resumes out and it froze after I logged on. I couldn't restart by pressing ctrl+alt+delete x2 and I had to hold the power button down for about a minute or two before it actually shut off. I ended up googling and found a suggestion to restore the system. I have tried this twice now, first time I left the room and came back 2 hours later and it was stuck on "system restore is initializing" screen so I held down the power button. I'm on my third attempt and its been on the same screen again for over 3 hours. What happened? How do I get my laptop to work again?!

When booting the laptop (XP, SP 3) is stuck at the "Windows is starting up" window.

First, the log-in screen (where you enter user name and password) pops up only for less than a second, than it beeps and the screen disappears. (Usually this screen stays on and I change the user name from "administrator" to a different user name.)

I can start the laptop in the save mode, but I cannot switch to a different user (I guess this is normal). I would like to backup files (stored under the user name). Is there any way to switch users in the safe mode?

What can I do get over the stuck "Windows is starting up" screen?

I cannot go online with the laptop - the Wifi network is not working / not showing up at all (is this normal in the safe mode?)

This is a friends laptop I borrowed- my laptop has major issues as well 6666666 Virus/Malware/overwrites everything
After the major issues with my laptop I installed and run Malwarebytes on my friends laptop just in case. The software found nothing. Zonealarm and Avira are installed and were always up to date.

I'm really desperate! Now the second laptop is down. I feel sooo bad about my friends laptop - Please help me fix it!!!!
Both laptops are running legal Windows XP versions - installed on them when bought.

I have a laptop with Windows 7. I was playing games on it today and suddenly browser closed. Then everything else closed and logged out and my laptop completely shut down. When I tried to turn it on again, a blank black screen with a flashing underscore "_" comes up and none of my keys work. The F8 key does nothing. I have turned it off and on many times. Please help!
 

A:Laptop won't start up past black screen with blinking "_"

StarJune,
Welcome to TSG.
From your description of the fairly normal but unrequested shutdown, this could possibly be a windows update that failed.
What type of laptop is it? Do you have the Operating System disk? If not you can and probably should order one from the manufacturer.
Take a look at http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/What-are-the-system-recovery-options-in-Windows-7

I would attempt a Startup Repair first, then try System Restore.

I have a widescreen laptop of 15.4", in 1280 x 800 mode.

But I cannot put videos on full screen.

If I'm watching a video on for example, you tube, and I click the button to put the vid in full screen mode, it just creates a blank screen, either in black or white. I can't see anything or do anything and the only way to exit this set up is to press ESC on my keyboard.

Is there a way I can change the settings or something so that I can watch videos in full screen on my widescreen lappy?

Cheers!

For a long time I have used the "projection" option on my HP laptop computer and have used an external monitor instead of the laptop's screen. Recently, I tried using the laptop's screen but found that the image produced is only a gray screen. Sometimes the image changes to a gray screen with lines showing. However, when I try using the external monitor the correct images are produced. I would like to be able to use the laptop's screen whenever I need to such as when I take my computer with me. Does anybody know how to resolve this issue? Any and all suggestions are welcome.

Hi, I am new to this forum and not a computer expert. My 6-month old Dell Inspiron laptop is currently stuck on the Welcome screen (with spinning icon). When turned on, it brings me to my sign in screen, I enter my password and then it goes to the Welcome screen and just stays there and the little icon keeps spinning. I tried holding down the power button to force it to turn off, then turning it back on but the same thing happens. It has been sitting, "spinning/stuck" for over an hour now.

Any suggestions on what to do? Thank you!

Hi aphelocoma,

Please try the following steps to see if they help:

Try to run 'hardware diagnostics' to check 'hardware functionality':
- Power off the laptop > Power it back on; at Dell splash screen repeatedly tap 'F12' > Use 'arrow keys' on the keyboard to highlight 'Diagnostics' and tap 'Enter' > Capture 'error message' if any.
You may refer to the following 'web article' for detailed steps: Run Built-In Diagnostics for Your System

If you still experience issues, try to 'Load BIOS defaults' to see if that works:
- Power off the laptop > Power it back on and at 'Dell splash screen' repeatedly tap 'F2 key' > Tap 'F9' to 'load BIOS defaults' > Tap 'F10' to 'Save and Exit'
Note: Also check the 'hard drive status' in the 'BIOS' (Check if detected)

Please share the exact system model, if no conclusive results show up.

Do reply with the findings; would be glad to assist.
