So here's the situation: My Lenovo U310's LED backlight suddenly stopped working. Atleast I hope this is the issue and nothing is wrong with the mainboard (it works fine with an external monitor... phew)
Before ordering a replacement screen, in order to make sure the display is the issue, I decided to plug a LCD panel from an acer lappy to my lenovo.
so I managed to get the tech specs of both the LCD panels and they are surprisingly similar (down to the same manufacturer). here they are:
Except for one thing. The "pin configuration" has a slight difference and the acer's panel (since its 14" and the lenovo 13") uses a bit more power. I'm more worried about the pin configuration detail.
What is this pin configuration thingy? isn't LVDS a standard?
