Ive ordered another Auo v4 for my 4530s. Now i was going to order the same Dual link LVDS cable what i got for my 4540s. Is it the same cable?

The 4530s uses a different cable than the 4540s. Read post #1.

The 4730s has 1600x900 display which requires a dual-link cable, so... yes it is the same cable.

You can purchase it directly from HP.

Did you use the correct config.plist (HD3000 1600x900)?

Just some insight i might put out there if any of you guys are from the UK. You can only buy a nice clean Auo V4 screen from wholesalers now which don't have any dead pixels. Not sure about other countries.

Im interested in doing this upgrade on my probook 4530s - Im struggling to find the screen though in the UK.

is is specifically the v4 screen that you must use or are other varients OK? - I have found a v7 however unsure it will be suitable.

does anyone have any links for UK stock?
