Gateway FX Laptop Screen

By lmathies ·
I have a Gateway FX P-7805u ( with the 1400 X 1200 resolution screen ) that has some issues with the case being cracked and the fans are going out. I recently bought another FX P-7805u (with the 1400 x 900 resolution screen).

They both have the same identical video card installed.

Is it possible to swap the higher resolution screen onto the other laptop? If so, what all would need to be swapped? CPU, etc…

Identical video card should be able to produce the higher resolution available on your older screen. You've probably hit the nail on the head so to speak, $$$$. Thought just popped into cranium; have you attempted to contact the manufacturer? Most likely they will be able to affirm or deny it. It's worth the time to try a call. Since you just purchased your new machine, tech support is supposed to be free from the manufacturer.
