    I have talked to online customer service. They said that the item comes with the screen only not the complete assembly.

    Just got a reply from them... this is what they said, "yes, we can ship (Canada), but this price is for the screen which had some problems, do you still need?" not sure what they mean by problems... I`ll write them again

    After 2 weeks digging google, I found the screen finally. I think the price is good for the complete screen assembly. I just bought one. Hopefully it will work for me.

    The answer to question 1 is Yes. I just swapped the complete LCD panel assembly from a 8760w Dreamcolor to a 8770w. And works fine! There is just one issue I can live with. That is 100% brightness setting will dim the screen. But 99% will do for me ;-). Just used the screen replacement chapter from the HP service manual. It's a easy job if you have som patience.

    How can you did this? 8760 have different motherboard cable so it is impossible or you changed it.

    Hi, Kamilo I read all about your attempt and I worried it would not work for me too. Pin 18 for ALS (the only difference) I left as is. No changes done
