hi Lenodroid

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

From the G50 datasheet and from page 28 of the HMM, the G50 series can accommodate up to 1920x1080 (FHD). However, this is only implemented on the G40-70, G50-70, G40-80, G50-80 models as these models uses a eDP (2 lane) connector whilst the G50-30 uses an eDP (1 lane).

Although theoretically the upgrade is possible by changing the panel to an FHD (like the N156HGE-EBB)) and changing the eDP cable (2lane), I haven't seen this upgrade being done by other users so I wouldn't recommend proceeding (unless you can return those parts just in case it doesn't work).

 

 

Regards

I just bought a G50-80 today and it has the 1366x768 screen in it. If I understand your post correctly, the G50-80 will already have the 2lane eDP cable and I would just need to buy the correct panel to upgrade to the 1920x1080 screen? I know the G50-80 comes with both resolutions as options, so it shouldn't be too hard to replace I would think. If I have a 1 lane eDP cable, what is the lenovo part number for the correct 2 lane eDP cable that I would need? Thank you!

Please, I would recommend a 14 inch screen "1920x1080" to update my lenovo g40-70
