Gtasmy, as advised in your thread discussing a processor upgrade for your laptop, the upgrade of pretty much any component, excluding a hard drive and RAM, is pretty much economically not viable.

A screen would fall into the same category. You could, however purchase a stand alone monitor of your choosing (dependent on your laptops graphics card) and connect that to your laptop.

The above option would probably work out cheaper than replacing your current laptop screen.

It most certainly would be not only cheaper but also more practical solution.

just like i told you with the ram the same applies here. laptops aren't really made to be upgradable like a desktop. your more likely to ruin it and it's not at all cost effective. a normal laptop screen runs about $200 bucks, now if you want multi-touch features your looking at i'd imagine around $500. it's just not worth doing. it would also void any warranty you have and it's not an easy task. however if you insist on going ahead with it check out the various modder communities, they are better suited to help you with this kind of stuff than we are here.

Buy a desktop. That you can upgrade all day long. Laptops are not made for upgrading.

Some manufacturers offer different choices of LCD displays to be installed at the factory when you order a laptop. It is theoretically possible to replace the built-in display on some laptops with one that has higher resolution, however replacing the LCD is NOT a task for an amateur and I would not recommend trying it.

yes you can upgrade t, i believe Technology News, Computer and Notebook Reviews, Computer News, Computer Mods, PC News | Maximum PC even has a how-to but it's not a task for amateurs and if you have to ask if it's even possible your likely not up to the task. why are you so eager to upgrade your laptop in so many ways?
