The Toshiba screens are nice too. But not as nice as the Sonys.
I would still be interested in the results.
|to have happened to the guy that bought the uwxga lcd is that that screen has 2 bulbs, and those seem to use 2 power conectors which the xps2/9300 dont have, so what we need to look for is an lcd with only 1 bulb,|

after several experiments with the Sharp LCD and 9300, I would lean more toward a bios/interface issue as thorndt has described; my limited experience with LCD interfaces suggests the behavior - brief white screen at bootup, then nada - is a recognition problem, so the 9300 shuts off the LCD data link
the Sharp LCD should work without either/both backlight bulbs, albeit dim (unless I got a bad one); if the interface issue could be solved (outside my capability), I believe the two backlight bulbs could be wired in parallel with the 9300 single receptacle
perhaps someone else can solve this
