Please some one provide links to ebay for:
1- upgrade kit
2- screen

I purchased the following from ebay and the screen remains as only backlit.

Links:

Kit:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-1920X1080- ... 2749.l2649

Screen:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/1920-1080-14-0 ... 2749.l2649

Please help.

Did I make the right choice on Kit and Screen ?
Is it a screen issue ?

Under the description of the display it states "100% COMPATIBLE" which is a hint that this is not actually a real B140HAN01.3 and thus, ironically, not compatible.
Most of the listings of this model are fake and will send you alternative panels that are "100% COMPATIBLE" it may take you many tries to find a true one.
Best of luck!

I have a Lenovo T420. Since my original screen crashed, I'm looking to buy a new one. I found on this topic that I can upgrade with the fhd + screen and board listed from the first post for T420. Is there some secure link to buy on ebay, aliexpress ... from China or Europe, with an affordable price?

I have a question.

Has anyone tried using this (or any other) FHD Upgrade Kit while using a 45W CPU?

I'm running my T430 with a 3740QM and using a 170w charger (because the original one didn't work (system on, not charging OR system off, charging)) for 2 years now ( other specs: NVS 5400M, 250gb sdd, kept the chiclet kb but got a backlid one, did eGPU for years) and runs smooth and stable as it was intended.

A better screen is the next step.

Having a iGPU, a power hungry CPU and now a FHD kit that will add up to the total power consumption. Will the system as a whole handle it?
Can it be a source for flickering? Even tho the past flickering issues seems to be over (for other users ofc, i never tried it before)

btw battery life is not a problem for me.

Have a good day.
