Can I upgrade the screen?

I have a DELL Inspiron 6400 with 1280x800 resolution screen (I think its WXGA) and ATI mobility x1400 graphics card.

I know that there was an option to buy this machine with a WXGA+ resolution screen (1650x1050?) and these screens are available to buy.

Does anyone have experience with upgrading to the better screen?

Hi Michael,

First of all, i would not recommend the upgrade since the laptop isnt worth it anymore in my opinion. It seems pretty outdated and i would invest the money in a newer one. Unless you do want to proceed though, it is 100% possible to do so. U would need a WSXGA+ CCFL 30 pin screen. Make sure it is CCFL or the connector will not fit.

Hope this helps you out!

Thanks! I still have one in use and it works flawlessly. Some more space on the desktop would be nice, though. Depending on the price for the screen I might try it.
