How to find screens specs of my W520?

#1 Post by cleinias » Mon Sep 21, 2020 10:17 am

Hello everyone,

I need to replace the screen on my W520---big black spot about 1" in diameter has developed on the top corner. But I don't know how to find out the specs and (hopefully) the LCD panel specific info.
Here is what the sticker for my Thinkpad W520 says:

TYPE 4276-37U
S/N R9-DENVD 11/05

A search on Lenovo's parts page, shows the followiong (among other info):

Title: AUO 15.6FHD
Part no: 04W1544
Mfg. part: 0A66631

Can anyone tell me how to find out what those number correspond, i.e. which kind of after market replacement LCD panel should I be looking for?

Many thanks in advance.
