    B156 is the wrong screen for this thread. 3.3 exist.

    It's the 15.6" version of the same screen from the same manufacturer. I'm just saying legitimately sourcing these screens is difficult.

    you're the man¡

    i have the MSI GT73VR 7RF with a 4k AUO B173ZAN01. 1 display 40edp and 17'3 inches, guy im looking to make the replacement like your but im not sure how i will hold the screen 3.3 that you put, dosn't have any holders to put the screws right?

    the B173ZAN01. 1 has 4 holders for screws 2 on the top and two on the low, other than that do you think that the B173ZAN01. 1 has 40edp 0.4 pitch or 0.5 pitch?, i need to check this info

    thx man¡

    It will work but I'm not sure about fitment, then screen in this thread does not have screw downs but is ment to be glued or taped down.

    Screen swapping is never guaranty to work unless the manufacturer is offering as an option. Otherwise, it’s taking a chance but more often than not that it does work.

    The B173ZAN03.3 has the same .5mm pitch connector however it has slim bezels with no mounting brackets. The challenge is mounting it properly against the lid with double sided adhesive to line up with the laptop bezels. Also the display is also thinner than the B173ZAN03.1 so it may sit lower than the laptop bezels. Some modifications are involved if you want to try it.
