Default 1024x576 updated to 1366x768? - 07-22-2010, 08:10 PM

I┬┤d like to build in a screen with a higher resolution than 1024x576.

the touchscreen i have now works fine but i have many programs than do not run with such an uncommon resolution.

phoned dell, they told me it might work. but they wont do the build in.

has anybody experiences with it?

ebay provieds lots of displays. so getting the hardware is not a problem but do i need to chance anything else?

is it possible to change the graphiccard?

at last, i d like to have a guide to open the displaycase....

I think your biggest obstacle is going to be finding a display in that resolution with the same connector as that has been the stumbling block on other Dell netbooks.
Although the New 2110 Netbook has a 1366X768 LCD, it may retrofit. But aside from buying one and trying it, probably no way to tell if it will.
There is no graphics cards really, it's embedded on the MoBo.
You can find a service manual at support.dell.com

perhaps someone has got a 2110?

someone suggested that i need another cable?

here are the serial numbers i found on the screen.

N101N6-L01 Rev C1

CN-0U702M-70896-958-1655-A00 DP/N 0U702M

I really want to try it out, otherwise I need another netbook with a higher screen resolution. To Many programs break down with an error thar the screen resolution is to low :-(

I bought a 2110 today, but I got the touchscreen. AS a result, the higher res isnt an option... I will buy a higher res lcd from ebay and see if it works okay. Give me some time for that.

Otherwise, when it comes in, I'll take a pic of the connector and we can go from there.

I don't think you'll be able to get 1366 x 600,1366 x 768 , which can fit 720p nicely is a lot more common. I have this size screen on my Mini 10 and it doesn't feel gimped at all.


Please do not send me support requests via PM.

Ric,

Were you able to locate a replacement screen for your project? I'm keen to know how it turns out since I'd like to get higher rez on my 2100 as well.

Talking It WORKS !!!!! - 08-13-2010, 05:51 AM

I have bought the screen right from Dell 1366x768 no Touchscreen.
Its the model Dell offers for its 2110 Models.

simply replaced the screen and.....


IT WORKS GREAT !!!

Windows 7 automatically switches to the new resolution at the first start.

And it was very easy.

Apps like Rosetta Stone works fine, no more crash with a "you have a to low screenresolution".

BUT

If you had the touchscreen before, you need the screencover for non touchscreen to. I Had touchscreen and now the new one is about 2 millimeters thinner. So there`s a gab between screen and screencover. but it is only an optical problem. I dont really care.


And theres so much space on the screen now :-)

p/s: the screen was 95,99 Euro. But it is worth it!!

i bought a 1366x768 screen for my 2100, it did not have the touch screen, my 2100 does, i took a razor blade and carefully separated the touchscreen from the original screen. I then put the touch screen on the 1366x768 screen and put it into the 2100, everythign works perfect. I did have to recalibrate the touchscreen through windows.

the 1366x768 screen i bought was for a dell 1012, direct swap with the 2100 screen, no problems.
