    I have to change since mine is broken.

    My actual screen is 9c67 : LP154WP2-TLA1

    thanx for your help.

    I saw someone do it to a powerbook. Possible then.

    Thanks Pixellated!

    I found a thread on MacRumors which said, that the CCFL panels aren't compatible with LED ones.

    Since the only panel 1680x1050 - LG/Philips, I found was a CCFL.

    Search dude, couple of threads on it already. One of them fairly recent so you shouldn't have oto go too far back.
