    Recently I had a technician come to my apartment to repair my laptop under my warranty. After he left I noticed that he left behind this lvds cable: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v475/MikeUnite/100_0622.jpg

    The cable has a tag dated September, 2008 and I got the laptop in August 2007, so I know that the cable isn't simply one that was taken out and replaced. With that in mind, I have two questions. My laptop seems to work fine, so is it even possible that this cable was meant to be put into my laptop? If it was supposed to have been put back in, are there possible risks to my computer even though it's working fine now? Thanks for your help.

    looks like a ribbon clear cable that you would find on the back of a notebook pc lcd. maybe he meant to install it and forgot about it, or took it out for another call, ive left tools at service calls but never new parts.....yahoo or google the serial number on it and see what its for...

    I looked it up, and you are right: it is an lcd cable. I'm not too worried about it since my computer and screen work fine, but I'll keep it in mind in case anything happens.
