Re: lenovo y510p screen upgrade

Laptop can also be connected to anything. I'm not sure what do you mean by that. GPUs used in laptops are the very same chips used in desktop GPUs. Every limitation to what you can connect to a laptop is either artificial or related to limited amount of ports. FYI I have a mobile chipset in my desktop, Socket G2 CPU and SO-DIMMS Smiley Happy And my screen was $309. Of course FHD gaming is awesome, but 1440p is... awesomer Smiley Wink  You don't need 42" to see the difference. Screen size matters depending on the distance between you and the screen. Greater amount of pixels is always better unless you don't have enough power to support it.

EDIT: We're slowly going OT, so if you want to continue this discussion please PM me.

Re: lenovo y510p screen upgrade

There are few options if you want to look into them -

 

Recommended - Contact Lenovo and ask them if you can return this laptop for a refund and order a new one with FHD screen.

 

If Lenovo says No, then try to sell this laptop locally for a decent price (since it is practically new) and buy from Lenovo again.

 

Not Recommended - Get the screen replaced by a local professional.

 

Other than these, I can't think of any other solution.

Re: lenovo y510p screen upgrade

Should i sell it and buy the ASUS N550JV OR N550JK? since i heard they have an awseome screen and decent GPU?

Cause they dont sell the Y510p with the FHD screen in any local shops here.

Or should i just keep it connected to the external monitor?

Re: lenovo y510p screen upgrade

Hey guys ,i know this is old, but i keep searching this everyday, i am really obsessed with getting a 1080p screen and feel that using my external monitor doesnt make it a laptop anymore , so can anyone give me advice how to stop thinking about it?

Re: lenovo y510p screen upgrade

Just dont think about it. Your screen still works. 1366*768 may not be the greatest but it works.

 

Did you even try any of my suggestions, I just can't think of anything else other than those.

You should have definitely called Lenovo by now to get a replacement or return. I should think that its too late now.

Re: lenovo y510p screen upgrade

Well, sorry to hear that. One person already tried replacing the screen and failed at that. I wouldn't recommend it unless you find a detailed video online or a professional who can do it.

 

Lenovo still covers all their products under warranty and you can atleast try to contact them. I am not sure if you have any local Lenovo stores there.

 

Good luck mate.
