Hi all, thanks for reading and for replying.


I need to change my laptop screen. Currently I have a screen with a 30 pin connection cable, but another screen that needs a 40 pin connection cable is listed as compatible with my laptop model (VPCEB3M1E). Is it true that the graphic card supports that connection? If so, will a 40 pin cable cost me much, and can I replace the 30 pin one?

-edit: I cannot open the computer right now to check that connection myself.

What 30/40 pin connections, what are the connection names? Your laptop has HDMI output, the only 30 pin connection I've heard of are used by Apple devices.

Other than a few newer laptops which use embedded DisplayPort (eDP), laptops use LVDS connections between graphics card and panel.

There are 30-pin and 40-pin versions. 

The Radeon 5650 in your laptop won't care which.  It's an MXM card plugged into the motherboard. 

The LVDS output will be on the motherboard, and since it's a Sony, there's a good chance it's proprietary.  You'll need to get a new cable, and make sure it's one that works with your Sony.  If you've found a panel that's listed as compatible, then it probably is.  Just make sure you get a cable with it that matches.
