X140e IPS screen upgrade and refresh rate questions

#1 Post by jogd01 » Tue May 07, 2019 9:16 am

Have an X140e and noticed it's screen wasn't the best but what really irked me was that it was running 50hz on Windows, yet when I booted and installed a Linux distribution it recognized the screen as 60hz, any insight why the refresh rate is being read incorrectly on Windows? Have up to date graphics drivers and monitor edid installed but I'm not able to change it under refresh rate options. Now the main part, because of those issues I decided to see if there's a IPS screen that I could swap out and it turns out there is; LG LP116WH6-SLA1. Original screen is IVO M116NWR1 R3, I can get 3/4 screws into the holes into the display holder but the not screwed in corner of the screen is raised up by the metal chassis. The laptop boots fine with the new screen installed but still has the 50hz max on Windows yet 60hz on Linux, any ideas how to make the transplant go as smoothly as possible? Here's a gallery of the screen not fitting: https://imgur.com/a/xwSj02v

It looks like the wifi antennas are the cause of the screen not fitting.

Remove those first, then try fitting the screen again.
