Does anyone have any inside knoweldge on laptop screen compatibility as I can't get help from anywhere? :(

I've just started my online store ( and I've tried everywhere to locate a database that determines LCD panel compatibility between laptops, but with no success.

I've tried contact AUO/LG/Samsung but no one wants to help me, even when i offer money (as per advice from my previous question).

Every other LCD seller out there has this information so it must have come from somehere.

Any ideas anyone, please?????? :(

PS. I've asked this question before but unfortunately the advice didn't help.

Got any examples of what that information looks like?

As far as contacting the OEM suppliers, you might do better just asking them for the part numbers and specs (e.g. frame dimensions, native resolution and backlight type) of screens they have made...  then match those data up with the screen being sought, and fill in the blanks of your database as you go. I know the inspiron E1505 I'm typing on was built with 3 different screen resolution LCD screens (with 1680x1050 being the highest native res), so knowing one LCD part number that 'fits' it doesn't mean that would be the correct one to replace what I have.
There are 2 basic types of LCD Connector on modern laptops at the screen end.
The form Factor dictates the size that will fit the laptop, once you determine which type of connector a laptop model has, you can choose an appropriate screen size.

There is not a specific database.

Each laptop has a number of screens that will "Fit" that model, the limiting factor being what chipset the laptop uses and which of the two connectors to the LCD that model incorporates.

Typically, Dell uses one type on a model line, same for Gateway, Same for Toshiba.

Most LCD Houses require you to pull the screen and tell them the numbers from the back of the screen you have to find a replacement for you.
