Supply the make and model number of the laptop and we can get a bit more information.

To answer your question:

Yes it is possible to replace only the screen but it depends if the manufacturer supply screen separately for your model. To replace it is quite straight forward on most laptops but will cause warranty void if you replace it yourself while the laptop is under warranty. If out of warranty, try searching for your laptop make and model number + Replace screen in google and see what it comes up with. Usually someone somewhere has tried replacing your model numbers screen if the manufacturer supplies the part and you can see how they did it there.

yes it is. just put the model on ebay and add lcd, you'll find a lot of compatible screens.
to remove the screen you might have some screws around the lcd pannel. sometime under stickers. depending on your laptop model.

Of course your model will be similar to this.

This will give you an ideal of what is involved.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

hnael, i'm sorry too - i was under the impression their manuals covered all aspects of the products.  I would see if you can get your money back or at least explain to them about what your after, they may have something they could send you.

I do not think its possible because it says clearly in thier documents if its download then nothing we can do, do not worry about it , when I measure my screen the size I think was 15.5 but can I be sure about that not sure if they mention the size in manuals ! ! I managed to remove the old screen but damaged the bezel frame hope to find one on ebay.

If you have the LCD panel out just check the back for the model number. Something like LP156WH2 and look it up on Ebay.

Here is your LCD for $70: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200517591381&rvr_id=142099985727&crlp=1_263602_263622&UA=WXI7&GUID=cdd6cf1812a0a06c1d951355ff340e03&itemid=200517591381&ff4=263602_263622
Here is the link to HP's support: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=4066817&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=11&submit.x=7&lang=en&cc=us
For almost all HP's, you need a #1 and, maybe a #0 philips screwdrivers. Pop out the little rubber bumpers around the top inside cover, remove the screws, starting in the middle on each side pry outwards with your fingers to release the bezel, undo the screws on the sides of the LCD itself, flop it forwards, remove the tape holding the connector in place, undo the connector, replace the LCD, and reverse the process to reassemble it.  Voilla, job done.
