Something went wrong with my upgrade:

I got the B156HW01 V.7 and I also ordered a replacement cable https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B006OW62ZK/?tag=tonymacx8603-21

The problem is my screen has gray fog everywhere and the font is readable but has small gaps in it. I checked twice if i made the right connections. I believe that replacement cable is the wrong one because my screen looks exactly with the same gray fog when i connect my new screen with my old cable.
I think i will return the cable and order http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-HP-4730s-4530s-4535s-6017B0298901-647151-001-646274-001-LED-LCD-LVDS-Cable-/282402462651?hash=item41c07f9bbb or http://www.ebay.de/itm/80431-LCD-LED-Cable-Video-6017B0298901-647151-001-646274-001-hp-probook-4530s-45-/361982192717?hash=item5447d1ec4d:g:g9wAAOSwX9FZHDLV

Advice is highly appreciated.
I installed a 1080p screen in my 4530s the other day with a B156HW01 V.4. The gray fog screen is most likely the cable or the cable not being seated properly seen it many times. Can you attach picture of the number on the cable.

Good to know that it´s probably the cable. The cable itself does not have any label on it. I assume the Amazon seller doesn't know 100% which cable it really is. It looks like my old one, but I can't say for sure. I tried tor reseat the cable 3 times all with the same grey fog result.

I will order another one from eBay with the label on it. I think I will try this one: http://www.ebay.de/itm/80431-LCD-LED-Cable-Video-6017B0298901-647151-001-646274-001-hp-probook-4530s-45-/361982192717?hash=item5447d1ec4d:g:g9wAAOSwX9FZHDLV

I can't find real trustworthy shops only two eBay shops, one from China (link in my prior post) and this french guy.

Thanks for the help it reinforced my doubts regarding the cable.

Maybe defective cable or wrong cable that was sent.
Yes it was the wrong cable. I ordered another cable from a french guy on eBay and it worked. It was worth the work. It looks so much better. I probably will use the laptop another 2-3 years as I don't need more for university and video stuff.

For all wondering where i got my stuff in 2017:

1. I literally wrote all english and german sellers of the B156HW01 v.4 screen and they all only sell compatible ones. I wanted the v.7 version instead and got it from http://www.tdcomponents.com/AU_OPTRONIC-laptop-lcd-displays.shtml . Contact them before purchase if they still have the original of your version. Only V.4 and V. 7 have slightly higher quality then the other versions according to this thread. According to this thread all versions of this model work.

He did send me the 6017B0298902 version and it worked. He sells it for 31 € but he accepted my 25 € offer.

Well i have two AUO V4's here in both of my 4530s & 4540s the screen is truly better with the colours better than the stock screen the Probooks come with.
