I couldn't resist the pawn shop $15 Think Pad with a cracked screen...SO found a supplier of a screen that was ALMOST the right size.Outside measurement the same, but display area about 1/4 inch larger all around . Hell at $35 bucks, go for it. They also included the converter stick.
Dissassembly was very careful and slow. matching things up very slow too so as to not make a mess of the very dodgey contact rubber gizmos. I shaved the bezel down the needed 1/4 inch, and got it all togeather. Vi va! Thinkpad,lives again. I could have used the video, but that was about 5 years ago.
Gained a lot of respect for the Thinkpad engineering, But don't risk a lot of dough, 'cause there are a number of ways you can kill a sick screen forever..
