Hello all, the laptop in question is an hpcompaq 6710b. Wanted to know if it's an easy swap to change the resolution from a

WXGA (1280x800) Matte to a WSXGA+ (1680x1050) Glossy?
 
Is this a possibility without major software changes etc.? Thanks in advance to all you guys.

Looking at the service manual there are at least six different system boards that may be in that machine.  I do not know if all system boards will support both screens.  Provided the hardware works, the software side is a simple resolution change.

Well it looks like i might be sol. Man nothing is easy. I was looking online for suppliers and all of them were out of stock...probably due to the lack of demand. Well I'll keep trying. Thanks Kilroy, I downloaded the adobe file so I can figure out which screen I have. Your great man!
