You need to replace the panel, cable and the lid.

All I know is that the parts list shows a different part number for the lid on machines with the high-res screen

You are probably right! 

 

I realized I was talking out of my back-side. I have a W541 NOT a W540. I'll edit my previous post.

W540 and W541 both show FRU 0465521 for FHD lid and 04x6431 for High-res lid. I have never tried to make that change. I have a W540 and I decided that if I needed to upgrade, I would buy a new machine and sell mine, rather than void my warranty by doing that sort of upgrade.

Just replaced the 1920x 1080 screen on my W540 with a 2880x1620 screen. Just needed the correct display cable. took 20 min, did not need to replace lid, screen fitted fine.
