In teory you need a N156HGE-LB1 display. Seems that lot of people here succeded replacing their laptop screen with this model. But except for bionan, nobody had posted a photo or a screenshot.

i am finally successful
the screen model - N156HGE-LG1 Rev C2 fitted my z500 laptop perfectly.
All i had to do was disconnect the battery input to the motherboard first, then replace the screen. I didn't have to change the display power cables.
i have only two or three brightness levels. The brightness is manageable with software like flux, dimmer, etc. I use a combination of both flux & dimmer.
It's cost me like $60 for the entire buying new screen + selling the old screen process.
oh man, the screen looks really really beautiful, totally worth going through all the hassle. Contact me if you got to ask anything.

ok, for me "the good drivers" for brightness issues (with OEM LCD Panel) : Intel Video v22.214.171.12423 on WIN10.
When windows boots, I can adjust the brightness with fn+F11/F12 keys. My product number is a 59366165 with the latest 1.21 bios.
Your bios version is up to date?
