Re: Screen upgrade from 1366x768 on T450

2016-09-07, 13:08 PM

Just want to add my recent experience of upgrading the T450 screen to Full HD.

 

Mine came with the standard screen, purchased a full HD+ screen, plugged it in and just got purple bars down the screen.

 

Turns out the laptop comes with a single channel video cable, and the Full HD needs the dual channel cable.

 

Spent ages trying to find a cable or even a part number and got nowhere.

 

 

Odd thing though.   Lenovo parts catalogue only lists 2 cables.... Touch and non-Touch.

 

If anyone can point me to a cable or even a part number, it would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

What is the FRU# of the panel you got?

 

There is indeed only one non touch cable, which should work with any panel AFAIK. My guess is that the panel is either defective or you got one with no FRU#.

My T450 and Machine type Model-20BV000QAD. Now when I contacted to Inidia's customer service, the customer service representative said me that I can't upgrade my Screen to FHD as my machine type model is not supported. And I am really confused!! Is it a valid point? or they just misguiding me?

What they told you is incorrect.

 

As you can see below from the T450 specs, some of them are/were delivered with FHD screens:

 

There are also users in this forum that reported they did the upgrade with no issues.
