    Hi Guys

    I was given a HP Compaq 6375s today with a shattered screen but the base works fine and I also have a Toshiba Satellite A200 that is dead/doesnt boot but the screen is in good condition. Would it be possible to put the Toshiba screen into the HP? They are both 15.4 WXGA screens with the same resolution when looking at the specs online.

    Any info would be much appreciated.

    Thanks peeps. (y)

    Hi ko0bf4c3, and welcome to TSG.

    It takes more than the same resolution to allow swapping screens. The interface cable type(s) and pinout(s) would need to be a perfect match. The operating voltages and signal timing requirements would need to be the same. They would need to use the same kind of backlight and have the same backlight operating voltage. Any differences in mechanical dimensions and any mounting hole locations could be problematic. You would need to compare full electrical and mechanical specs to see if one would work as a drop in replacement for the other.

    Thanks for the reply cwwozniak just been going thru the specs pages and I don't think they will match by the looks of it, just thought I'd ask to see if it would save me buying a new screen lol.

    On the specs sites it has..

    The 6735s -

    • Screen type LCD (Active, Color, Backlit, CCFL)
    The Toshiba A200 -

    • Screen type LCD
    And I also have a spare Fujitsu Esprimo 5535..

    • Screen type LCD (Color, Backlit)
    Cheers. :)(y)

    You need to take the screens apart and look at the make and model of the actual lcd panels.

    You just may be lucky and find that the two use the same ones. If they do then you can very carefully swap the panels.

    That doesn't look too bad. Is the Desktop background correct or not ?
