This is the back of the laptop screen of the laptop I own & it's a sony vaio VGN-NS255D/S laptop, the lcd screen is 15.4", WXGA, CCFL backlight:


I am not sure what LCD to order because the back of the one on amazon looks different, please help

On the back of the display, down in the lower left corner is a sticker.
There are two pieces of info to get from it:
  • The manufacturer (LG, or Phillips, etc)
  • The model number - an LG display will look like this: LP174XD4(TL)(A1)
Now go to a website that sells Laptop screens and search for your exact model number. You will need to specify whether you want a glossy or matte screen, as most models come in both.


I have used this firm from Canada, and can confirm that the display they sent me was an exact replacement part, not a knockoff:
LAPTOP SCREEN, LCD panels from $42. Dell, HP Compaq, Toshiba, Acer, IBM Lenovo, Sony, Gateway, Apple, Asus replacement screen display panel


Hope that helps.

Yeah, you posted that link in your other thread. And you are right, you can't be sure from the information available.

Amazon is terrible in their product specs. And there is no chance of contacting them with questions. So I don't know what to tell you.

You may need to continue to search for a website that actually has the replacement, or contact LaptopScreen and see if they can get that part for you. It may be too new to be listed yet.

Try a local and authorized Sony retailer? They could have the part your looking for or even someone who can do it for you. Just don't let anyone fix it because it could get worst =) Hope that helps

I have purchased off ebay many times using label information off back of lcd as described above. The brand of laptop is irrelevant. Just need correct display and make SURE display cable connection matches your mobo.

Sometimes I search laptop model for parts... But that has risk of wrong lcd model

Amazon not a good place to look and other resellers typically. $$$. The other benefit of ebay is you can contact seller and know all details of item before you buy... Including close up pics.

Happy to help you find one... Just need close up pics of label and cable end

For example http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...d=400228563902
