I obtained a problematic Dell Inspiron 600m. In the process of getting
and building it back up, I decided to one up Dell... maximum supported
is SXGA+... however, Dell did use a 14.1" UXGA screen in other model
laptops... I aquired one, and fitted an inverter from an SXGA+ screen to it,
and it works great !!!... except... the laptop doesn't control the
the inverter (even though it will with the same inverter used on a SXGA
Evidentally the ACPI bios can recognize the display, and must not know
display ID ?) how to adjust the brightness of the inverter (even though
it is the
an inverterd from a supported SXGA+ screen).
Am I stuck with max brightness ??? Anyone got any ideas ? I'd love to
to 100% work... UXGA rocks (although fonts are rendered small ! :-)...
pixels in 14.1 inches !!!).
I know there are geeks on this list that may have some ideas... hence
so... help me 'rescue' my upgrade before I have to abandon it and downgrade
to SXGA (or live with UXGA at max brightness on AC or battery).
