    CF-54 is different from 31/53/30 etc.

    All that I have seen of the above have the cable coming from under the edge of the silver cover as this appears to have. BETWEEN Gasket material.

    They have been gluing the original keyboards down since CF 30's.
    Those were a real PITA as they used tape/glue AND the sliding hold down pins.

    Is the original poster sure that you need the second connector on a CF 54?

    Hi everyone, i recently upgraded my CF-54D1441KC from the stock 1366x768 screen to an aftermarket(but seems to be same manufacturer) 1920x1080 screen. The process went relatively well, removing a bunch of screws around the screen, moving the screen sticky cushions to the new one but removing the old screen is a destructive process because of the double sided tape holding the screen to the front bezel(very high chance of cracking the glass). Screen works out of the box with ubuntu and 120hz but the intel driver in windows 7 64 bits just refuses to show an image, i am running without a driver for now. And yes this screen can be ordered with matte finish, just specify before ordering.

    Interesting.
    Did you take any photos?
    Is this a touchscreen model?
    Did you keep track of the LCD part numbers so you could post them?

    Thanks!

    The old screens can be removed and saved/reused if you use a very thin long razor and carefully cut the double faced tape first. Cut from the outer bezel side.
    I always tape the screen with masking tape to prevent scratches.
    This is the process I used on CF 29, 30, 52G,74 models in the past.

    It was not a touchscreen model, i could tear it down again to get part numbers later today.
