Finding the Right Lenovo T410 Screen

Whether you've cracked a Lenovo T410 screen or are just looking for a ThinkPad T410 screen upgrade, there are lots of new and preowned Lenovo T410 screens available that you can choose from. This guide will help you find the right screen for your laptop from among the many affordable options that are available to you on eBay.

How do you find your T410's screen size and resolution?

You must choose a screen that has the right size and resolution when you're replacing your genuine Lenovo T410 screen. If you choose one that is different from the original settings of your device, then the screen will not work. All Lenovo ThinkPad T410 models, so the T410i Lenovo or the T410s, use a 14.1-inch screen. The harder specification to match is resolution because it can differ from one laptop to another based on production year, model type, and other factors. Here are a few things to look at to check the resolution of your Lenovo device:

  • Start menu: Open the start menu on your computer and then go to "Appearance and Personalization." You will see an option to change your resolution. The recommended option that you see is the native resolution of your device.
  • Screen model number: On the back of the screen, you will see a screen model number. Enter this number into eBay to find compatible screens.
  • Lenovo FRU number: If you have an original Lenovo screen, then there should be an FRU number on the back. Enter this number into eBay to find compatible screens.
What type of backlight is available with Lenovo T410 screens?

During the production run of the Lenovo T410 ThinkPad, there were two types of backlights used: LED and CCFL. Much like with size and resolution, this is not interchangeable, and you must pick the right one for proper functioning. Unlike size and resolution, Lenovo T410 only uses the LED type of backlight. Picking anything else may result in the screen not properly lighting up.

What is the difference between matte and glossy screens?

The screen's finish is the only factor that is interchangeable without affecting performance. The difference between the two is how they display color and reflect light. Glossy screens display colors much more vividly and are good in rooms where there are no bright lights or any lights directly turned toward the computer. Matte screens are useful in rooms where bright lights are common because you will still be able to see what's on the screen without disturbance from reflections on it.
