Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

I don't yet have the mod, nor I have the full understanding of the mirroring issue, but I do understand xrandr. Your xrandr output means Xorg can only see your LVDS-1, running FHD. Everything else is either off or disabled. Thus, you definitely need not use the command xrandr --fb 1920x1080 --outpu...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

I don't use Ubuntu but in Arch on my X230 this xrandr script sets up the display correctly for me with backlight control working, no kernel patch applied: xrandr --fb 1920x1080 --output DP-3 --primary --size 1920x1080 --left-of LVDS-1 --output LVDS-1 --off && xrandr --output LVDS-1 --auto The brigh...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

http://www.ebay.it/itm/Compatible-Led-L ... 1277695358?

is this SPB4 suitable for the x220?
My only doubt is that I don't see the holes for the screws in the picture.
thanks

I took delivery of an SPB3, but I think it's been damaged during transit - there's weird marks under the surface of the screen, and the panel itself looks a little bit twisted... :oops:

Sadly I can't even test it as I don't have my FHD kit yet. :P
where did you buy it ?

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

LP125WF2 SPB4 were out of stock at win0win's store, so I bought a LP125WF2 SPB3. Hopefully it's fine anyway.

I ordered from him spb4, 4 days ago. I wrote him in message that i want exactly spb4.

I think he means do you want spb4 or spb3
Sorry if that has been covered before but is spb4 better than spb3?
this would be indeed interesting to know

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Hi, I decided to buy a LP125WF2 SPB3 screen from win0win on ebay, as recommended by nitrocaster. The seller's policy is to ask the LCD screen part number in order to be sure that the model is the correct one, as they do not accept returns. How do I find this code? for the record, I'm using an x220. ...
