Winbook Si laptop - are 12.1" and 14.1" screens compatible?

I have an 850 MHz Winbook Si laptop with an apparently flaky motherboard.  Another 850 MHz Si is available, but it has a broken 12" LCD screen.  It appears that I can physically replace the 12" screen (and the lid) with the 14" one from my Si -- would it work?

It is a winbook xl when i power it on the battery light turns on not any other lights i dont see any thing on the screen or hear the harddrive or any thing not even a beep i need help the laptop is about...

Without seeing it, I'd guess the power unit might have failed, or it could be the motherboard. Modern computers have a system management controller you can try resetting, but on a 15 year old laptop I don't know what the equivalent would be, if it even exists. If it's the motherboard chances are it'll be cheaper to buy a new computer.

Replacing dvd drive

Most times there are a few screws just below the drive. Open the drive, remove the screws, the drive should slide out. It'll be a little stiff at first until it's unplugged.

How to Open a Winbook Si Laptop

The keyboard is fairly easy to get off. At the top there is a plate that covers the switches; on the left there is a tiny hole that you use a paper clip to push down gently and unlock a catch (like on a CD-ROM drive door). While gently pushing down, slide the entire cover to the right, and then lift it out. This will loosen the top edge of the keyboard; lift from the top edge and push toward the screen, and the tabs at the bottom edge will slide out of their sockets. The keyboard mylar flat cable will have some sticky stuff on it, so be careful when lifting the keyboard not to tear the keyboard cable.

Once you get the keyboard off, you can also remove the CD-ROM drive (two screws, silver and black).

To get at the hard drive, which comes out of the top of the case, from under the keyboard palm rest, you take out the battery, and the three screws on the bottom side of the case nearest the front edge. Then you can pop off the black keyboard palm rest below the keyboard. Be careful to not damage the cable connecting the touchpad to the mobo; it has a little plastic connector. The HD has three screws holding it in, including one on the adapter that attaches the IDE connector to the mobo.

Hope that helps
