    So I have an ASUS GL702VS with a LP173WF4-SPF3, according to HWInfo. It stock setting is 75Hz and I can overclock it to 100Hz, but I'm afraid that I could damage the screen. What would be a decent upgrade panel option for 120/144 Hz? Supposedly this is a eDP 2 lane 30 pin connector panel and my motherboard has a LVDS 40 pin.

    Can anyone help me?
    I'm trying to upgrade my lcd screen, but i've found inconsistency across my laptop. It's a Acer Aspire e5-57478LR. (it's part of Acer Aspire e5-574 series)

    It uses a Innolux N156BGE-E42

    http://www.panelook.com/N156BGE-E42_Innolux_15.6_LCM_overview_24349.html

    in the specs it uses eDP signal type but the problem comes in the flat cable

    which is a DD0ZRTLC141 and in the specs inform that is a 30pin LVDS 30 pin cable.

    So. what can i do with this laptop? i've attached both pictures below:

    Its a 1 lane eDP cable, so any display that uses 1 eDP lane with a 30 pin connector can be used.

    That more or less limits you to 60hz FHD ones.

    What are you pursuing with the upgrade?

    Faster refresh rate?

    Or better colour reproduction?

    Originally i am trying to upgrade to a fullhd one, but i'm aware of the lanes in the edp cable. Do you think that i'm able to replace the cable? Or the motherboard will reject it?

    1 lane eDP is more than enough for a 60Hz FHD display, no need to change cables, and I'm not sure your mobo even has 2 lane eDP support, so that cable might not even exist.

    After sourcing another N173HHE-G32, this time a legit one, brightness controls work perfectly, and the display is gorgeous.

    So, if anyone sees this in the future, it works perfectly on the GT72.

    I would like to upgrade the screen of a Dell G5 (aka the latest version of the Inspiron 7000 series laptop), so far I have narrowed down the choice a few panels.

    - AUO B156HAN01.1
    - Samsung LTN156HL01 (-101 ? -102? -nothing behind?) I don't know which version to choose
    - BOE NV156FHM-N43
    - LG LP156WF6-SPB1 (seems a little less color accurate, and there are a lot of -XXXX versions that are very different)

    But my biggest issue is how to source those panels.

    What I want is something shipping from Europe both for taxes and shipping costs, and also, obeviously I don't want to get a compatible panel with low or average gamut.

    EDIT: The Chi Mei n156hhe-ga1 (120 Hz wide gamut TN) seems to be a decent option too. Same question applies.
