    laptop lcd screen

    Hello all. I was wondering if it was possible to change my lcd screen on my laptop. I have a Toshiba Satellite 1715XCDS and the lcd screen, i have now, is actually fine. Reason why I'm asking if it is possible to change it is because the resolution is limited to 800x600. So, to be more specific, I was wondering if it was possible to change my lcd screen with one that can support higher resolutions (like 1024x768 would be perfect <i think those are the dims..>).

    Thanks for your help!

    I had a 15' TFT SXGA Active Matrix Display that just burned out for some reason. Well TG it was still under warranty. I had to send it back to DELL and they put a new one in the same computer. Only they upgraded me to the UXGA (1400 x 1050) for free because of the trouble. So I know it can be done, but not being a hardware person, I don't know if this is something you could do yourself or not. I would just give Tech Support a call and see what they say about it.

    It's usually not worth it the. screen is probably the most expensive part of you laptop

    Good Point Dissata ... that's very very true. It might just be smarter to get a new one considering by the time your new screen get's old everything else in it is ready to go.

    Thanks for the replies , I think you guys are right. I actually found a website advertising laptop screen replacements and the average price was like around ~$500 USD. I'm probably better off buying a new one.

    about that... there are intangibles you might consider when replacing your screen which might mask the money or tyme... [for example, my father is a laptop hobbyist... we've traveled far and wide for many a part...] and if it is just hardware to you, then the tyme and money would be quite more valuable, right? either or...
