Hey guys, I have a  Toshiba Satellite P850 and recently I cracked my screen an am in the market for a new screen but I have stumbled across with a bit of a problem. What kind of data connector the screen. So I am freaking confused as to what type this Satellite P850 uses, I checked device manager but I could not find anything.


I just did an ebay search and I came accross this (it is a 40pin):  




I just want to know whether the screen of which I have linked above will fit a P850 and if not what kind of pin I need in order to fit my screen. 


Your help is greatly appreciated.

Device manager will not show you anything, as the data connector on the LCD screen is not a device. The description Standard 40-pin isn't super helpful, but you will need to physically inspect the connector on the back of the LCD panel in the unit, and confirm it looks like the one shown in the link below (may not have latches):
