The laptop has vertical lines of dead pixels running across the screen and I want to get the LCD replaced. Now the non touch screen model of this laptop has a Full HD variant (1920x1080) as opposed to the standard 1366x768 WXGA HD display while the touch models only come with the WXGA HD LCDs.
Can I replace the LCD of my touch screen model with the FHD one? I have been able to detach the digitiser from the LCD itself and have the hinges and screws so I would assume it would be a simple case of changing one LCD with the other. The replacement touch screen models all come with the digitizer and hinges attached which is not something I require so it would be easier (and cheaper!) if I only got the LCD replaced.
Lastly, if this is possible, do I need to purchase any additional cables? If so, which one?
Thanks in advance.
You're going to need at least the FHD wiring harness:
and the bezel
You may or may not be able to re-use the back cover/hinge assembly - usually these are different between non-touch and touch versions.
