It seems to me that the world of laptop screens is full of meaningless numbers and model number codes for me.
I would like to know if I can go on ebay and buy a laptop screen not searching for the notebook's model I want to use it on, but based on the specifications of the screen.
Is this possible? How do I do it?
For example, my little DM1 has just lost it's screen. For now I know it uses the same screen for at least the dm1-1000, 2000, 3000 and 4000 series.
All of them are the same 11.6 by default (apparently).
But why can't I buy a 15 incher and plug on it if I wanted to? Is it possible? I don't know for now because I don't really know anything about them, what 40 pins means, if there is different kinds of 40 pins, what kind of connectors, cables, energy supplying, etc, etc, etc.
Some knowledge please!
It's the internal screen.
You are going to need an EXACT replacement in most cases.
I already know that, I want to know why.
I want to learn about the connectivity standards, to be more precise, as bezel size or screen size could be easily modded.
It amazes me that nobody talks about this here on OCN.
