touch screen conversion

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm assuming I am putting this in the right thread since this is the only one for laptops.

I have a good HP dv7z laptop with an A10-4600M and AMD 7730M gpu. I have all the other upgrades for this laptop with larger battery, 1080p screen and so on. I do not want to sell this laptop as I did get it for a good deal online.

I recently upgraded to windows 8 and I really wish this was touch screen. I know there are touch screen conversion kits. I just want to see if anyone with experience with these kits can give any hints.

I would prefer to install the screen internally so I can still open and close my laptop. I repair laptops often enough for friends and family so I dont mind opening up the entire laptop.

Just looking for others input on which kit to get. Some of the links I find on google are broken so please if you guys find something check if it works:)

thanks.

anything is possible. You would have to source a touchscreen lcd, of your laptops size and remove the old panel and install the new one.

Alot of work.

Honestly I think the better route would be to just get a touchscreen laptop.
