Lenovo U530 Touch: Silver.
I've had this computer since October 2014. One recurring problem seems to be that the hinges are not strong enough to support the display. While under warranty, I had lenovo repair my hinges a few years ago. Now, the hinge is broken again and I need to replace it. Can anyone help me find me find the part number for the hinge?
The screen, or it seems like the outer layer of the screen, cracked while I was moving it as well. The hinge stuck out of the panel and cracked the outer screen layer (if there are 2 layers) and the touch seems to be broken. Do I need a full screen replacement or just a touch digitizer replacement? Can anyone link me the exact part I need for this as well?
To be more specific: when I change my perspective, the crack appears on different locations on the screen which made me believe it is only the outer "layer" since as a touch computer there are 2 parts to it. From my brief research into this, I was going to order a new LCD however I'm not sure if it's a different part when the crack can be felt with my finger and that it looks like it's on the above layer rather than the LCD screen itself?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Page 65 only details the LCD, I'm not sure the exact part where the glass digitizer is. I tried looking up the LZB LCD Module HD and FHD, it did not come up. I'm also not sure if the LZB LCD Module HD is even the glass digitizer.
Is it also safe for me to say that the outer layer of the screen is the glass digitizer?

Based on your private message, it shows PN 90400216 (LZB LCD Module FHD).
There no specific digitizer part as it is replaced by OEM as a whole module. There may be videos in the internet that may show U530 LCD digitizer replacement but this is not official and is not offered by the Lenovo.
Other enthusiasts decide on themselves what would be best since the entire module would be replaced then they take liberty of exploring digitizer removal as a cheaper option.
