Greetings.

Looking to attempt to replace the video cable for a 2-3 year old HP G60 which, when the monitor works, runs fine and fast.

Couple of month back the display began flickering and then just finally went dark.

If you held/pushed on the top left back part of the monitor (when it was open, of course) the display would come back up/on. Not very helpful but at least you could see what you were doing.

I did plug another monitor into the laptop and it worked fine, so I'm guessing that it's the cable, rather than the card.


So, I would like to buy a cable and replace it to see if that resolves the issue. However, I've never purchased this type of part (video cable) before so I thought I'd post and see if there was something I might be overlooking when purchasing one.

Do I need anything other than the make/model: HP G60 and the screen size (15.6 inch screen)?

I found this over at Amazon and it seems to read like it's the one I need....but thought I'd get a second opinion.

Any feedback, comments & suggestions always greatly appreciated.


onward,

Winterland

Your better off getting the spare part directly from HP.
