    It seems to be possible that 4530s users can upgrade their screen to an 15.6 HD+ or FHD screen. Since HP shipped this model with an 900P screen everybody can take this advantage (even the cheapest models coming with simple HD).

    So if your laptop comes with a 1366x768 screen all you have to do is change your screen cable with this one (provides international shipping), or part number 646273-001 from hp part-surfer costs ~67$.

    However my idea about using the 4730s cable (part number 646274-001) worked with successful implementations on the tonymacx86 forum. The good think is that this cable is almost 1/3 price on the partsurfer (~19$) and 1/4 of the price on the alinc.com (15$).

    So total cost will be 15$ (plus shipping) + ~(100$) for the screen minus the original's screen value(~80$).

    Upgrade cost would be only ~40$!!!

    I now suggest an RGBLED screen 1080p matte AUO screen part No B156HW01 V.4 only 89.99$!!! One of the best RGB monitors around, you can check anandtech review .

    Also confirmed working the LP156WF1(TL)(F3) &(B2) matte screen @ 69$. Its price is great and its colors, white and angles are pretty good.

    I someone is interested for 900p screen I would recommend matte LP156WD1(TL)(B1) & (B2) .

    However every led with 40-pin left connector screen would work.

    Post #2 is a small guide

    NOTE: This upgrade is only tested and working on 4530s. A guy from the tonymacx86 forum tested it on 4430s and it is NOT working so far.

    I have no intention to advertise any of the sellers I gave links above. However they seem to be trustworthy and very helpful to technical issues.




    Little guide for those worrying for too small letters!!!

    How to?

    -Purchase one of the following cables.
    646273-001 or 646274-001. 273 is the "official" upgrade cable for the 4530s while 274 is the cable used on the HD+ 4730s. According to liposuction's picture they are identical on looks while huge difference in price (~50$).

    -Purchase one screen of your liking HD+ (1600x900) or FHD (1920x1080).
    I suggest the LG LP156WF1(TL)(F3) (70$ +shipping) for its greatness. It is also the one tested from all users here. However any led screen with 40pin left connector would do. (laptopscreens.com have some starting from 50$ prior to shipping).

    -Unscrew initial bottom cover

    -Unscrew every screw you can see (including those under the rubber covers.

    -Remove you dvd and the screws that it is hiding.

    -Carefully remove your keyboard. The first time needs much force since it has also some adhesive tape.

    -Disconnect every connector you see.

    -Unscrew every screw you can see.

    -Remove carefully your upcover.

    -Carefully remove the last screw left to remove your motherboard.

    -Now disconnect the display cable.

    -Wait for the above parts to come home.

    -If everything is home, follow the youtube video on screen changing for the 4530s.

    -Put everything back in position.

    -Power up your machine. And!!!

    hope it helps

    Bravo timohour!
    I think my username will be in your table soon. What keeps me back is that my 4530s is brand new and I dont want to be brutal so early.
    It would also be helpful if you could do a video tutorial of how to change the screen cable.
    By the way there is another video out there HP 4530s ProBook 4530s Laptop Screen Replacement Procedure - YouTube which demonstrates screen replacement with removing the hindge covers

    Do I need to buy the cable if I want to upgrade from current 900p to 1080p?

    Not yet. Sorry to bring that to you but don't have time to deal with Internet connection due to exams. After 16/2 I promise to upload.

    No need to upgrade cable if you already have a 900p screen. We use a cable because the 768p isn't compatible with 900p or 1080p.
    All you have to do is purchase a 1080p screen and follow the YouTube video.


    Don't know if this work for 4520s or not. Sorry I don't have one to test right now. But if there was an original option from HP (900p or 1080p) it will work with the proper cable.

    If the screen is a 40pin-left connector LED, it is combatible. If it uses an right connector you can use a left to right adapter.
    If the screen is an CFL it can't be done.
