    I believe you'll surely come to grief trying to connect anything but a 100% compatible screen to that machine. You most CERTAINLY don't want a screen with a different plug, how would you connect it?

    I'm not familiar with laptop screen interfaces, but if they are just VGA (and I suspect they probably are), then they should all be 15-wire connectors, so you could theoretically make a connector or just solder the wires together. If they're not VGA, then they are probably some other standard, even if the connectors are different shapes. That's a pretty far-fetched idea though, and I'd never actually try it -- I'd either get a compatible screen or a new laptop ;)

    If you look on eBay you might find a parts model that is damaged or gutted, but still has a working screen. That's a pretty obscure model though. Chances are it's an Acer or something disguised as another brand, so you may be able to use other screens...

    They're not just "VGA", most of them are digital interfaces. I can assure you that trying to solder a new connector onto a different model of LCD panel is a project that's almost sure to become an expensive can of worms! Have you ever taken a laptop apart? There is no room for splicing wires.

    I agree with the search for a compatible replacement, it's the only sane answer to this issue. :)
