Does partnumber matter?

Posted 16 December 2015 - 10:10 AM

Hello

I'm having two spare laptops. One old one with a broken HDD and to low specifications (Laptop A), and a (an also old one but) still good laptop with good specifications, but a broken screen (Laptop B)/>.

I want to place the screen of A into B.
The problem is, that the broken screen of B had part-number B156XW02, and A does have another one (I don't know which, it's a really old laptop).

I've heard that it's not good to replace a screen when the part-numbers of the new and broken screen don't match.
But, does it really matter? And can I try it, or will it... Explode or something?

And if it doesn't work, I can still take the LCD screen and make a second-monitor out of it, right?

Thanks a lot!

Sometimes.. mostly due to connections differing between brands, and even intra-brand models. If you can find a tear down video of both and check (or find the part and see if the screen shots help). Also the size, mounting brackets, etc.

You can always try.

Doubtful, but certainly wear protective glasses if you are concerned.
