Thinkpad T450 IPS panel upgrade

2017-03-15, 14:12 PM

Is it possible to buy a part on the lenovo website and change my panel to an IPS one? I see there are many panels available for my variation of the T450. My variant is the PC-049SNG. I am unsure which use IPS technology.


It is under warranty until the summer of 2018, though a panel swap should be easy?


kind regards



Solved! See the solution

Hi William


Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.


As I understand that you have query regarding upgrading your T450 LCD panel to IPS 

Yes it is possible according to Lenovo parts list. And here is one thread which suggests IPS panel upgrade

And here's the part number for IPS panel 04X5916, also you can order the parts on this website.

It will be better to contact Lenovo Support once for LCD panel replacement as system is under warranty.


I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

Hi, I'm Agung from Indonesia.


I also want to upgrade the Thinkpad T450 LCD. The current LCD panel is 1600x900 with a description :
Monitor Name: Lenovo B140R102 V1 (N140FGE-EA2)


I read on the Lenovo website, it is recommended to use FRU 04X5916. But when I asked an online store, it was mentioned that my laptop is not compatible with that FRU. It was explained that if I use the FRU, then I will lose the brightest. Is this true?

Is it true that FRU 04X5916 doesn't match my laptop type? Please help with the information.


Thank you.



Agung Prasetyo.
