Lenovo Legion Y540 replacing LCD screen

2020-09-20, 21:15 PM

I have 2 questions...

 

Can I upgrade my screen to a touchscreen by changing the LCD panel and screen?

And is it possible to replace an LCD panel with an OLED panel, if not will it be possible in the future?

Hi OPTmawa,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

When it comes to upgrading LCD screens for laptops it usually comes down to what configurations these devices can come in. 

 

Looking at the 17IRH , it can come in these Display configurations:

 

One of the following, configurable by model: 

● 17.3" (439mm) FHD (1920x1080), anti-glare, LED backlight, WVA, 300 nits, 16:9 aspect ratio, 72% gamut, refresh rate 60Hz 

● 17.3" (439mm) FHD (1920x1080), anti-glare, LED backlight, WVA, 300 nits, 16:9 aspect ratio, 72% gamut, refresh rate 144Hz

 

So in this case, the safest compatible upgrade would be from the 60hz version to the 144hz version.  Replacing it with a Touchscreen will not work, and replacing it with an OLED most likely not either, because the motherboard needs to be able to support them. The symbiosis between motherboards and LCD screens are quite sensitive, so any small change away from what it supports will in most cases not work at all or there will be problems with the display.

 

The same goes for the 17IRH-PG0 model:

 

● 17.3" (439mm) FHD (1920x1080), anti-glare, LED backlight, WVA, 300 nits, 16:9 aspect ratio, 72% gamut, refresh rate 60Hz 

● 17.3" (439mm) FHD (1920x1080), anti-glare, LED backlight, WVA, 300 nits, 16:9 aspect ratio, 72% gamut, refresh rate 144Hz

 

Which I then assume is the same for the 15IRH and 15IRH-PG0 models, but at 15.6"

 

Regards
