Hello, I have a Acer Aspire 5920 that currently has a 15.4" display, which has very low contrast and and low resolution(1280x800). I just recently had my old 17" Toshiba crap out on me, and it has a absolutely gorgeous screen, high contrast and the resolution is (1440x900).
Now what in trying to do is to replace my Acer's 15.4" LCD with the 17" from my old Toshiba. Now before I get bashed saying it cant be done, I have already experimented with it, with very pleasing results. The Acer's inverter powered the back lights just fine, and when I booted up into my OS it immediately recognized the new screen and adjusted my resolution accordingly. I am also able to interface with the new LCD's brightness and contrast settings just fine. But the one problem I am having is this, I have black vertical lines on the screen. although the image seems to be attempting to display correctly. These lines are not random, I actually examined the screen under a magnifying glass, and what is happening is one row of pixels is showing an image and the next row is blank, and that pattern is consistent across the entire panel. I Will attach some pics to try and show you, but they were taken with my cellphone and while they do show the problem, they dont show it very well.
The Screen is displaying the image like this ( Dashes are active pixels and X's are blank pixels)
-X-X-X-X-X-X (this pattern is constant across the entire display)
I have noticed that while the two laptops have the save connector, they are each wired slightly differently, I will try to add pics of the differences when my girlfriend is done commandeering my laptop to watch Star trek, lol.
The 17" Panel is a (LG.Phillips LP171WX2) I will post the Manufacturer and Model of the Acer in a few hours when I can dissemble it again. but for now here is a link to a replacement screen, HERE
By the way, the green lines on the last picture are not a problem, they are just there because the wallpaper was not set for the larger display, so it just shows a solid color on either side.
