Default Will presario 1200 screen work on a presario 1688 notebook.

Hi, I have a compaq presario 1688 with a screen that has lines on the
upper part of the screen. I also have 1200 with a good screen that I
can use for parts to replace the screen and was just wondering if the
1200 parts comatible with the 1688. Just wondering if anybody replaced
a 1688 screen with an older presario screen. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply but I appreciate someone that has tried to do this
or atleast knows if this is possible, not taking a guess that is might
not be possible.

HH is not "guessing". Every laptop mainboard is designed to function
with a given set of LCD displays. Many new laptops have an 8bit switch
that can be set for more than one display with different
characteristics, but these LCDs are predetermined when the mainboard is
designed and manufactured. The components of the display that are
critical are the inverter, the CCFL, any processor that is attached to
the video driver (some are on the display itself). There are many
variations of these components.

You could get lucky, but the 1200 series predates the 1688 and there is
likely no commonality that will allow the older display to function on a
later laptop.

You are certainly free to do the research yourself and report your
findings for the world to see.
