    Hello,

    I have an Asus tTP550LA laptop with intel hd 4000 graphics and 4200U processor with a 1366x768 screen. I tried setting the resolution to 1080p, but it's not working and I keep getting an "bandwidth exceeded message" from the intel graphics settings. I tried using toastx's CRU utility and followed the instructions, but the 1920x1080 resolution, even though it's saved in CRU, does not show up in windows resolution settings or intels. Can someone please help me out? thanks in advance.

    You can't use a resolution that's in excess of what is supported by your hardware. You would need to swap out the panel itself.

    I thought that was the point of CRU though? To force resolutions that we otherwise can't access?

    More to overclock the refresh rate, if your panel only as 1366x768 physical pixels what do you expect that will happen when you try to force it to display 1980x1080 pixels?

    The panel wont know what to do with all that information, so either garbled image or a black display would be the outcome.

    That is precisely the reason why we have the screen resolution confirmation box and timer countdown for decades
    . In the past if you tried to exceed the resolution you took a chance on damaging your CRT monitor if it did not have a built in safety feature and instead, tried to force a screen resolution it could not handle.

    Ah okay, thanks for clearing that up guys. So in order to get a 1080p image, I would need to purchase a compatible 1080p screen then, correct?

    Yes a 1080p monitor is the solution. But a cheaper option is if your laptop or PC has an external display port, most do (some have a VGA or HDMI port). If you have one of those then use the appropriate cable to hook up your computer and connect it to your HDTV via HDMI.

    * Most HDTV's today don't have a VGA ports but rather HDMI connectors.

    The laptop does have hdmi out so it can work with external screens, but I like the touch/flip functionality and will be taking it to school so that's why I want larger screen real estate. I know this is beyond this thread now, but would you happen to know if the 40pin, 30pin etc refers to the connector on the laptop motherboard or the screen? Because my current screen is:

    http://www.panelook.com/modeldetail.php?id=12338#N156BGE-L41_Compatible_Models

    and has a 40 pin connector to the screen, but to the board it is 30pin? My laptop came in two variants, one with a 1366x768 screen and one with a 1920x1080 screen. I looked on ebay and all the cables listed for my laptop(TP550LA) are the same for the 1080p version(TP550LD). So I'm not sure if I need to purchase a new cable along with a screen or not, it seems the only thing I need to make sure of is that the screen I purchase is LVDS, single channel, 40pin and 1080, no?

    There 2 HDMI connectors (small and large). The large size is the standard size used for HDMI HDTV’s. Some laptops because of their size use the smaller HDMI connector. And you can buy a dongle that connects to your laptop and the other end uses a standard HDMI connector.

    Your best bet would be getting a full lid assembly from a 1080p model..

    Then all cables are already included.

    On the mobo side they are identical, but I can't guarantee that the cables are equal in both displays.
