    From memory: right side seen from behind (IIRC that's what normally called right in LCD specifications?). To make sure look at the disassembly .pdf that's posted somewhere in this thread.

    Yes! I like where this is going. Thanks to those looking into a potential replacement screen.

    If you find any that may be viable candidates, I'm willing to pony up and shell out to buy one or two for testing.

    Careful. Need the appropriate height and width as well as diagonal length.

    Im guessing other than dimensions, connector has to match, mounting holes have to match, compatibility with gfx cards (maybe?), and also it has to be thin enough to fit the enclosure.

    upon writing this, I feel less hopeful already.

    Hah. Good point.

    Our panels use LVDS, that much is known. Not eDP (the other common format).

    Ah yes - be careful inside that unlocked BIOS. I have no idea which of the several items I changed caused it to brick itself, but bricked it most definitely was. Sony replaced the mobo and back it came after about 3 weeks.

    The symptoms were exactly as described. Blank screen, popping sound, green power led fading to black. ...and absolutely no way to clear the cmos or reset to default. IMHO a very poor design.

    Does anyone else have a slightly crooked wireless switch? Mine is slightly hanging off to the left, but still operates fine.

    I need to update the firmware of mine crucial m4 to the version 309, if I try to update it it say "no drives found".
    I think that it is something related to the raid configuration in the bios. has someone successfully update it?
