Can I replace the 1024x768 screen with a 1400x1050 screen alone?
Hi, I have a Dell Latitude D610 for which I have no use, personally, but it is not yet in condition to sell as it has a broken screen. Can I replace the 1024x768 screen in it with one that is 1400x1050 without having to replace anything else in it (i.e. inverter, CCFL) or do I need the whole assembly?
Reason I ask is that the display alone can be anywhere from $40-60 on eBay while the whole assembly can be $100+, and I'm not sure that I need the whole assembly yet. I'm fairly sure the inverter works OK, as the small corner of the screen that does work works fine the whole time.
Ultimately, will I be able to pay $50-70 to get an upgraded, working display and turn this into a sellable laptop? I've gone through and cleaned up the Windows installation so that it boots up fairly quickly and it's ready for somebody else to pick up and start using as soon as I've got the screen in working condition.
Is this a good question?
