You will have to determine who actually made the display; there are not large numbers of manufacturers.

I would just Google the PN if you can identify it, and see what comes up.

If it is one of the biggies in LCDs, they will probably have application info on line.

Multiple vertical screens at startup (dell inspiron 4100)

Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop (15 pin VGA connector). If the display appears normal on the external monitor then you have an issue with your laptop's LCD display. If the external monitor also has vertical screens then your video circuit on the laptop has a problem.

Normally you need to switch the video output to the 15 pin video port by pressing and hold the FN button and then press the one of the Function keys that has screen symbol on the key.
This will toggle the video out put between the notebook's LCD screen and the video output port.

How to send signal from laptop to big screen

Your laptop should have a 15 pin connector on the back. You will need a cable to fit this connector and then connect the other end to a similar connector on the back of your big screen. Typically, your laptop will use the F10 key to switch the video between your laptop and the big screen. Then on your big screen tv you will need to find on your remote control " and select the correct one, usually called "PC" Good Luck

You replaced the broken LCD screen in your laptop with a new screen but it’s not working.
Does this sound like your problem? Let’s find out what could be wrong and how you can fix it.
First of all, I assume that your new LCD screen is compatible with the old one. Different screens require different video cables. Make sure you new screen is compatible with your laptop.

You did some research and purchased a compatible screen, installed it into the laptop, turned it on and… The new screen is not working!!! What could be wrong?

Before you start to panic, check all cable connections again. Check connection between the video cable, LCD screen and inverter board. Reconnect cables just in case.
Take a closer look at the connection between the video cable and LCD screen. It’s possible you accidentally pulled the video cable from the connector during the screen installation.
The video cable has to be seated properly, all the way down.
Also, on some older LCD screens there are very thin pins inside the connector. Take a look inside the connector, make sure there are no damaged (bent) pins.
You can straighten bent pins with a very small screwdriver but this procedure requires a lot of patience and concentration.

Fortunately, most newer LCDs have a different type of connector, without fragile pins inside.
OK, you have reseated all connectors and cannot see anything wrong but the new screen still is not working. What’s next?

Remove the new screen and connect the old one. If the old one works properly (except the damaged area) but the new one is dead, apparently the new screen is defective and has to be replaced.

Hopefully it has warranty.
Here’s another scenario. The new screen kinda works. You can see a very faint image but there is no backlight.
If that’s the case, disconnect the new screen from the inverter board and plug in the old screen instead, as it shown on the picture below. If the backlight inside the old screen lights up, apparently the new screen has defective backlight lamp and has to be replaced.

To replace broken screen on acer aspire 5735

First you need to get the right screen. Take out the screen by removing the rubber bumpers on the corners of the lcd bezel, then unscrew the screws that were beneath the rubber. After that you will have to pry slightly on the edges of the bezel to unsnap it and remove it from the laptop.

After that you will remove the screws on the sides the attach the screen to the hindges. On the back of the lcd it will give the model number, ebay is a good source for lcd screens. Once you get a replacement screen, you disconnect the cable on the back of the lcd and bottom, and then repalce the screen and assemble in reverse order.

How do i replace a toshiba qosmio f45-av411 lcd

First remove the battery from te laptop. Locate all the screw covers (in the front side) with the watch maker screen driver. There might be four of them. Once you remove the screw. covers, remove the screws and remove the front bezel. You can now separate eh front bezel. Locate the screen assembly. Remember, there might be laches. So, be careful not to break them. You will see the frame scrwes after this with the vedio cable quite visible. Just remove them to find the invertor. Thats it.. You have removed the LCD screen.

Hope this helps.

Conecting to a flat screen

If you have a LCD that uses SVGA style connector (15 pin possibly blue) then Plug it in to the vga port on the Aspire and reboot.

If you have a DVI connector then you need a Digital to annalog converter, and it would be cheaper to purchase a VGA LCD monitor
