    Display Upgrade Question

    Hi. I have a 16" WXGA LCD screen and I'm wondering if it is possible to upgrade the screen to a 1080p LCD at 16"?

    Here's my specs for reference:

    HP G60-243CL
    Windows 7 Professional x64 w/ SP1
    Wistron 303C Motherboard with Phoenix BIOS ver. F54
    AMD Turion 64 X2 RM-72 Mobile Processor [S1 Socket]
    NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G
    4GB Kingston SODIMM DDR2-800 RAM
    320GB Western Digital HDD @5400RPM

    Website of my mGPU:
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/product...g_mgpu_us.html

    Any advice and suggestions much appreciated.

    What are the differences in resolution supported by each of the monitors?

    This is a laptop correct (you state mobile processor). Changing screens would be a major undertaking I would think. I would definitely consult with a professional tech on that one. Too easy to break something.

    If it is a laptop, I really fail to see why this would be done...

    Yes, the question doesn't make any sense. I'm sure even an HP rep would tell you that it's not doable/nonsensicle.
    I'd think it would be cheaper to get a new larger laptop with all the specs you need.

    Listen to these guys on upgrading. I haven't built a PC for many years and woud not want to give wrong advice. I know Clint has recently done so and it sounds like Clive is very knowledgeable as well.
