Question about Dell Inspiron 1150 Latitude D600 14.1 LCD Display-LP141X14 CD-ROM Drive
My old XGA LCD quit working. the only cheap one i could find online was SXGA, but after the install it looks exremely washed out, like every other vertical pixle line is white and not working. I was thinking i might need a new driver to run it or something.
I am no expert on this issue, but i am not sure you can install a SXGA resolution screen into a formally XGA laptop. Never tried that before. I don't believe that it will work CORRECTLY. As you have stated. Is there anyway you can send it back and get a XGA one instead and solve your problem? Keep me posted.. I am curious about this... THANK YOU ...GURU JAY

The problem is the LCD flex cable. You need an SXGA flex cable for an SXGA LCD. The old XGA cable isn't able to handle the resolution properly. Replace the cable with an SXGA cable and you will have solved your problem. Unfortunately the SXGA flex cables that are available are shorter than the stock XGA cable that ships with the Inspiron 1150. In particular SXGA cables for the Inspiron 5150 are about an inch too short. If you cut a few holes in the LCD housing and the keyboard housing you can reroute the cable so that it reaches the motherboard but it still is tight and pulls against the LCD housing when you close the screen.

I just ran into this myself. The problem is your LCD flex cable. You must have an SXGA flex cable for an SXGA screen; with the old XGA cable you get lines. Unfortunately the only SXGA cable I could find for the 1150 is about an inch shorter than the original XGA cable so it didn't reach the motherboard plug. After cutting out a piece of the LCD housing I got it to reach but it still is tight and pulls on the housing when the screen is closed....
