what the screen/lcd cover that fits flush over the LCD is made of? Is it plastic or is it really glass like they advertise it is? I ask because people on youtube who are posting reviews say it's plastic and not glass. I'd like to know one way or the other before deciding to order.
I recently aquired damage to my laptop screen, an HP dv6000 with a 14.1 inch (wide) screen. I am looking to purchase a new one, however the 'specs' or details of the screen (ex. Video connector info, backlight type) are way out of my realm of understanding.
Before I purchase a new screen, I would like to make sure it is completely compatible with my laptop. How am I able to determine this?
Also, what is the esthetic/quality difference between Glossy and Matte type screens?
i just found this forum and it seems like you guys could help me answer this question. i have a dv2000 laptop i bought about 2 years ago and the screen has started to mess up. essentially it has two problems.
1. there is always a vertical line about a pixel thick that stays a yellow color. no matter what is on the screen, the line is always yellow. if i bend the display panel a bit it disappears but comes back as soon as i let go.
2. when i open and close the laptop to adjust the screen angle, the screen starts flickering with these white lines. i have to keep messing around with the screen (moving it back and forth) for it to come back to normal. im not sure if a cable is loose or maybe broken.
im assuming that i need to replace the entire display panel but im not sure if i can get away with just buying the lcd screen and replacing it. i can probably get rid of the yellow line on the screen but i think the flickering is caused by something else. could it be a loose cable that i just need to fix?
I have a HP Pavilion G6 2302ax laptop. When i uses google chrome, sometimes the screen gets some grains and suddenly becomes blue. A message is displayed saying that the system encountered an error and need to be restarted. The error is "SYSTEM_SERVICE_ EXEMPTION".
I am using the high performance graphics for running google chrome.
I Just Brought New Lenovo z580 Win 7 , 6Gb Ram , 1 TB ... The problem start after 1 week , the screen random crash like the image attached .. i tried to uninstall and install the graphics card nvida and intel but nothing happen the problem that its random .. almost it happened with google chrome ,, not with high graphics games ...
My T440p slightly adjusts the screen brightness depending on what is being displayed. For example, on Chrome, one page might have more images, so the screen slightly adjusts brighter or darker. Another page it might slightly adjust again. And it does it when scrolling down a page as well. It is distracting, and I want to disable it? I'm on windows 7.
My Vaio Z11 laptop came with a German keyboard layout (QWERTZ), as I purchased it from Austria. I'm using English as the input language and I sometimes have trouble remembering where some punctuation marks are.
Can I replace the keyboard? If yes, how doable is that by me? If so, how? Where can I buy the replacement English Q keyboard? (Actually, where can I find spare parts for Vaio Z series?)
how to replace the keyboard? My daughter spilled spaghetti on the keyboard and some of the keys doesn't work anymore . If anybody knows how to replace it with photos and instructions I would appreciate it a lot.
I actually noticed a faint, faint line in the outer glossy covering on the top of the laptop, about half-way in the middle horizontally. It looks like a plastic blemish but looks too perfect, as it's perfectly straight and right in the center.
Again, doesn't bug me, but I'm curious if anyone else noticed this. You gotta see it in the right light!
I have a XPS M1530, And the screen doesn't go off when I close my laptop. I have contacted dell about it. They replaced the mobo, the LCD Screen, the Palm rest. And it still doesn't go off... I'm wonder what it can be...
I am considering the DV7T. quality of the keyboard/trackpad and screen?
For some reference, I have gone to the local electronics stores several times of the last few weeks, and I really don't like the feel of any of the NEC, Toshiba, Panasonic, or Fujitsu models (in Japan and these are the only brands the locals carry). I did however, really like the keyboard and trackpad on the new Sony F series, and I like the trackpad on the previous F even better.
Just by going by specs, the DV7T has 2 big advantages over the new F series, the ability to have 2 hard drives and price. However, just looking at the keyboard from pics and videos, it doesn't look so good, and it seems the biggest complaint is about the screen.
I've been trying to follow various vague guides on how to replace Acer screens. The closest guide on this forum is for the 6930 but the layout is quite different once you open them up. I have so far removed the speaker cover and detached the screen from the main laptop. I have also un-popped the screen bezel but am now stuck. The proplem is that as far as I can see, I need to get the whole bezel off in order to accesss the LCD fittings but I can't because it's catching on the hinges (and the small circuit board for the AC in socket) which protude from the screen. How do you remove the bezel? It looks like it should slide up away from the hinges but mine is getting caught everytime. What have I missed?
I've reviewed the manual pdf & relieved the tabs behind keys & the switch cover just won't separate- even taken out about every bottom screw out- What am I missing ?- Does the LCD need to be removed first?
