Is it possible to replace a laptop's LED panel (screen) to another model?

Hi,

A few days ago I've received the Lenovo U310 laptop I bought, and while I generally like it a lot, the screen is absolutely terrible. It's got a TN panel, OK, but it's probably one of the worst I've seen. Viewing angles are so terrible I find myself constantly adjusting the lid to avoid looking at a washed out/ too dark an image.

Is it possible to buy a different 13.3" LED panel (would love a 1080p IPS) for a laptop?

    Hi :)

    No...its almost impossible for that to work ..around a 1% chance... (see my sig)

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Why is it impossible?
    Don't they all have a common set of cables and connections to the motherboard?

    I realize you own a laptop repair shop, but I am looking for an explanation as to why it won't work, not why I should believe you (not that I don't believe you).

    Can not. You can not change it. But you can ask your former supplier/seller for some other replacement if possible.
