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-LE...192717?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.

Attach picture of the cables part number and amazon listing.

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.

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.
