I have an old laptop, it works well except just recently its screen started flickering periodically. Like it will glitch out every 2 seconds like old CRT monitors when they went out of sync and the image keeps scrolling on the monitor very fast. I have tried to wiggle the cable at both ends, and it doesn't seem to affect the image on the screen
I have decided to replace the screen, but as i was looking at replacements, i found a higher resolution screen for the same laptop
- Should I go for it or just purchase the same resolution as my old one?
- Will they even be compatible?
- Would i need to change the cable along with the screen or will the current one work?
Model: Asus N56VZ
GPU: GT650M 2GB GDDR3
LCD Cable: NJ8B LVDS CABLE HC DDNJ8BLC000
Current screen: AU Optronics B156XTN02.4 15.6" 1366x768
Wanna upgrade to: 1920x1080 screen found here https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/ASUS/N56VZ-DH71/
Any help will be appreciated! I am a college student so I need to replace the screen as soon as I can before classes start next semester.
