Got 1600x900 screen from HERE
, and despite the perfect fit in the the lid housing and also 40 pin connector compatibility, the attempt proved not to be successful.
All that I got was back lit for few seconds and low res screen in safe mode. I tried to pull battery for ten minutes, hoping that it could reset the graphics card or what not but nothing helped.
With this being said, I think that the problem is in Optimus (graphics system of N82JV). That's my personal guess though. LaptopLCD (the retailer I got the screen from) was very helpful but their rep just categorically refused to doubt the possibility of N82's compatibility with any 1600x900 screen. Regardless, they have been great and fully refunded my purchase at the very end.
Bottom line is, upgrading to 1600x900 is not for everyone and certainly did not work for me. However, ASUS made taking off the bezel and removing LCD very easy...and everything was back to rock solid after putting it together...my coin for those who are in need of LCD replacement.
Next, is CPU...I apologize to all N82 owners who were coming back here to see my progress, but sometimes life happens.
just finished playing Dead Space 2 in 1900x1200 on my external monitor without a hiccup...everything on full except no antialiasing Edited by -LuckTR- - 5/8/11 at 1:06pm
