I ordered a screen raplacement for my MacBook and just got it today. For starters i got a macbook pro screen replacement. but for the biggest problem the screen doesnt have the pins. would i be able to take the pins off the old screen and apply it to the new one?

Yes, you need to use the iSight bracket from the old glass on the new one. The first time I changed it, I accidentally threw it away.

Let us know if you can up the resolution once installed. Please.

Thank you.

i installed the screen with no problem and used the pins from my old glass. i just krazy glued it. and I didnt install a new lcd so the resolution wasnt affected.
