Hi,

 

I have almost a year old laptop, I love it. But, I want to get rid of the touch screen mainly due to the fact I barely use it, and can sell it off. I wish to buy a non-touch 1080p screen.

 

I saw a video,  showing how to take apart an Envy, just that is a 17" no biggie. But his is non-touch. My current is touch. I figure it'd be almost the same, just the glass extending farther for the touch.

 

Anyways, my question is. Would this screen: http://screensurgeons.mybigcommerce.com/15-6-1080p-full-hd-laptop-screen-with-led-backlight/ fit my laptop.. It's my only hope I see without having to sell this and buy a different laptop. I want 1080p to enjoy doing my graphics work in Photoshop, mainly having it ready before college. Before I jumped the gun, I wanted to get an expert(s) opinion.

How much is the replacement screen? How much can you sell your touchscreen for? If you haven't done it before, I suggest you just leave it. It's not worth all the time and trouble. Just buy a regular 1080p monitor and just do a dual monitor setup if you have HDMI port. It's always good to have 2 monitors when working with Photoshop anyway.

I've done other inner laptop changes so its not new to me. I will be in college with little room so another monitor isn't an option for me. The screen is $105, which isn't bad to me for great picture.. If it works on my laptop. I researched I might need to buy another cable for the new screen as well. I may open my laptop and check my touch screen model #

I took the stickers off and saw I can't bend the screen back far enough to undo the screws to open the screen myself.

 

I contacted HP and they are taking the case to a higher authority. I asked them if I can send it in and they do it and that I am willing to pay a fee. $ talks... lol.

15" is not that big enough to see the difference in 1080p. Plus the screen ratio of the one you are getting may not fit what you have.

Maybe for those that don't have 20 20 vision, but I can see the difference. I have a few friends that have 1080p 15 inch laptops.
