I'm not aware of anyone who has performed a LCD upgrade on a Mini 9. Touchscreen overlays are common, but the underlying LCD is left alone.


Mini 9 | Intel 5100 Wifi | Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook
Mini 1012 | SSD | Intel 6200 Wifi | Ubuntu 11.10 64bit

the chances of the controller not getting along are very high. While it is possible, it will take someone that has both already and doesnt mind experimenting.

Okay, loved the idea of having more res/screen space.

I just picked up a 1280x800 panel designed for an hp2133, it appears to have the same 40 pin connector as the 1024x600 panel.

I deduced this because you can purchase a 1024x600 panel generic from ebay that is compatible with hp2133 and Dell 910/a90 as well as others, asus etc. THUS!!! the 1280x800 40 pin connector should be compatible with the 910/a90.

I will post pictures, and my results hopefully by the end of the week.

Maybe I will have the very first WXGA mini EVAAAAAARR!! MUAHAHHAHAHAHHA!!!

I just confirmed that the one they are sending is in fact a 1280x800 lcd that has a 40 pin connector.

The bezel is scratched to all hell so I got a steal, considering..

I don't need the bezel assembly at all, the LCD should be in perfect working and unscratched order cause it's behind a second piece of plastic. I am excited, cause the lcd res was my ONLY quarm with a90.

To be continued...

482278-001 WXGA, great deals on Computers Networking on eBay!

I would rather not give their specific ebay user ID that I purchased from as I don't want my forum pseudonym associated with my ebay pseudonym.

If you have a specific reason why you want the their ebay account you can PM me.

Somebody else tried this some time ago and smoke came out. The 2 screens might have the same connector but they are not electrically identical. Download the pdf and check before you try anything!
