    its very hard to find LVDS cable that comes with this laptop specially in my country .. so i had no other choice rather than just plugging the lcd of m17x r4 in my laptop

    The GPU's you can use are largely the same in both laptops. The LCDs and the cables to connect them is an unknown variable.

    If you disconnect the display cable from the motherboard you can then boot the system with a HDMI monitor connected. (This is something you could try if you suspect a bad display)

    tried this method long time ago before this issue but no luck ...well the seller has diagnosed some IC's failure issues below the MXM port section and unfortunately he is not having those ICs atm.. if he cannot find within a week, i might end up buying from ALIEXPRESS
