lenovo y510p screen upgrade

i have recently purchased a y510p with 1368x768 resolution, the order has been shipped but not received. now i really regret not spending $100 more getting the full hd version. Is it possible for me to up the screen somehow to full hd(1080p)? any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

Re: lenovo y510p screen upgrade

I think your best bet would be to find a broken y510p and swap the screens.

Re: lenovo y510p screen upgrade

Have you tried to discuss with Levono sales to exchange the notebook for new one with HD screen?

 

Trying to change the screen by yourselves is very risky and will void warranty.

Re: lenovo y510p screen upgrade

the only problem now is I'm not sure if the monitor cable for the 768p y510p is compatible with the 1080p screen, does anyone know??

Re: lenovo y510p screen upgrade

I'm not sure, but I think you can totally change the screen without any trouble. But... are you gonna spend more than $100 to update the screen? Then, why you didn't choose the Full HD model?

BTW, changing a screen is complicated, lot of things to do: you have to open your Y510p, unscrew a lot of things... and I'm not sure but screen changing is the most difficult upgrade you can do in a laptop.

Re: lenovo y510p screen upgrade

thanks. i will most likely purchase a screen from laptopscreen.com and get it installed local($30), so the whole cost shouldn't be more than 100 dollars which is worth it. do you know if the different models of y510p use the same screen?

Re: lenovo y510p screen upgrade

replacing the screen in a laptop is definitely not very difficult. Of course that depends on a specific model, but so far I never had any problems doing it.
If Iremember correctly someone already tried to do sth like that in one of the y-series, but there was a problem with the connection. That is why I think it is better idea to buy whole lid with screen, because they usually are connected with the same eDP.

Re: lenovo y510p screen upgrade

Well, I've changed the CPU of a laptop, I had to disassemble it entirely, to the last screw. I guess that 99% of the users are afraid even of unscrew the bottom cover. Well, once I tried to fix a broken screen (cut images and weird colors) and it was kinda difficult. Didn't fix it because I think the screen was broken. It has a lot of cables, and specially, the sensibility of certain plugs are too high.

May be it's not that hard, I haven't tried to change a screen, but what I remember is that was a little harder than disassemble the entire laptop.

Anyways, of course you can do it, you can even build your own laptop. You can also change the graphic card, welding a new one. But I have in mind the 99% of the users, which haven't opened and won't open a laptop in their lives.

Salut! PEACE!

Re: lenovo y510p screen upgrade

i did both and i say neither is more difficult than the other. on the other hand it depends on what kind of laptop you have.
