Hi all,

A quick question for the Flexview experts here: I just did a trial swap of a 15" R50p 1832-AU1 UXGA 1600x1200 Flexview screen onto an R52, originally XGA, with impunity, or so it seems. Works beautifully, seems to be no ill consequences. I have another R52 base, 1847-92U, also XGA originally, which I want to place the R50P screen on permanently. I'm swapping the entire R50p UXGA LCD assembly, with its original VGA cable and inverter as one unit. Do you think there will be any consequences with such a swap? Will the system board support it or could it cause the inverter, VGA cable or backlight to fail? And will I have full Flexview functionality?

Thanks in advance,
Daniel.

Since the 1847-92U is an ATI Radeon X300, you'll have no problem putting in a UXGA LCD.
All you need to change is the clearplate :)

Yipee :D That's good to know. And thanks for the fast response :thumbs-UP:

I've had this R52 base lying around for a while now. Now I can make a nice little project out of it. UXGA screen is in excellent shape. BTW, I got a great deal on that R50p. I took a gamble. Listing said, "Powers on but No display on LCD or external monitor." Sounds like GPU failure? Anyway, that's a job for you guys at the Board Room. I don't know about that stuff. I'm just happy to take the Flexview screen from it and put it onto the R52.

Have a great night,
Daniel.
