unfortunately, i don't know anyone around here
I'm trying to find someone, but it's difficult to get someone and say "Hey, can i disassemble your pc-with-all-your-stuff-inside and test my maybe-broken display?"
I've another idea: Tvin7, where you came from?

Then i used the instructions in this video to replace the screen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qszTGppZ-QA

@tvin7, sorry for having not contact you yet on twitter, i tried with another cable (claimed to be dual) but still not working. I'm starting to think that's a really big joke your're playing on me
@bionan, i'm happy for your success could you share a photo of your video cable? and also, what's the graphic card of your laptop?

We all have same connectors in our z500 laptops. But the most important thing is the cable should be capable of 1080p display. @bionan please open up your laptop's screen once again and post a photo like this (my cable).

@bionan, it's a 40 pin connector, every lenovo z500 screen has this type of connector. Please could you tell us what kind of graphic video card is in your laptop? Mine is a Nvidia GeForce GT 635M.
@tvin7 i don't think there are too much Aron Cazzola in this world, i know there's another one for sure i didn't receive any request on facebook yet
