I recently ordered a new screen for my ASUS G51JX off of laptopscreen.com due to a nasty soccer ball incident that happened in my dorm a few months back. The screen seems just fine, but I think I ruined the LCD connector cable on the inside during the replacement, and now the new screen won't function properly, or at all. The ribbon seems alright, but the connector is mangled and won't fit the new screen properly. Does anyone here know exactly what kind of connector is used in the G51JX, or where to find as a replacement? Some quick searches haven't found anything that matches it by model name.

Give these poeple a shout and see if they can find something for you.
A pic of your current cable would help us out also
Sorry to resurrect this ancient thread, but I have quite a few updates on the PC situation. I've gone through two cables attempting to repair the laptop, but both are from other similar models in the line. The first was used and appeared quite frayed, and so I returned it without much thought as the screen seemed not to work at all. When the same thing happened with the second, I became concerned there was a compatibility issue, or that my new screen was to blame, but as I was going to tear everything apart again and try my old cracked screen, I noticed faint images were appearing. The backlight appears to not work with any cable besides the one the laptop shipped with. A test with my old screen produced the same result. I'm currently wondering if there's a problem with the inverter (there shouldn't be as the screen has an LED backlight) or just the cable itself, but I managed to find the identical part number to the original cable on a Swedish website and put in an order.
Because school has started up again, I purchased a cheap HDTV and have been using it as a monitor, and have noticed a new strange issue: my computer is now overheating excessively. While its possible I may have bumped the heatsink while repeatedly plugging in new cables, I read online and on some Nvidia forums that there are issues with the GPU running on full blast for no reason whenever this particular card is plugged into an external monitor. The fan runs full blast even when internet browsing, and I've had several total crashes during games. Normal GPU temperatures now hover in the 70's, and it got up to 110 and shut down during a test run of Starcraft II... all from the main menu. Anyone think this could be anything related to the external monitor, or do you think there's a GPU or fan problem?
The problems are duplicated on other machines, but my question is more as to whether this is something that is likely a defect in the card, or something inherent to the card's design or that of its drivers. These patch release notes have a heading describing how the GPU runs at an extremely high clock speed on any multi-display setup regardless of what applications are running http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/280.26/280.26-Win7-WinVista-Notebook-Release-Notes.pdf . My screen is disconnected, and the TV is listed as my primary monitor. Could this still be the reason for my overheating?
