I have the acer travelmate 8204 WLMI too and it has a broken screen, I have tried to replace the screen with a new one that I have purchased from the USA. The screen I ordered was a NEW DELL LATITUDE D800 15.4" WUXGA+ LCD
They have however sent me a different one....
P/N: cannot see this on the wrapper
inverter: this is a different size to the one existing in the laptop!!
Flex cable: not in the package!!!
OK, because the mounting screws and size etc looked the same I went ahead and replaced the screen as per the instructions in this thread and all went well. I could not replace the inverter because it was a different size to the existing one so left the existing one in. When I powered up the laptop the screen remained black, I checked again the connections everything was plugged in properly but still nothing.
I have put back the existing broken screen and that powers up ok so nothing was damaged during the replacement process.
I have emailed the company concerned pointing out that the screen I ordered and the screen that arrived is different to advertised. As I am novice at this type of thing I welcome any thoughts or advice anyone can offer as I am not sure what the problem is, here is a link to the screen I bought from them:http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=310008474136
