Default Motherboard to LCD EDP Cable for MSI GE75 10SF

Hi,

I am trying to repair an MSI GE75 10SF laptop screen (the HDMI output works but the laptop screen doesn't).

I bought it without a screen in it second hand and was told it just needed a screen. I bought a 300hz screen for it, LCD model number B173HAN05.1, and a ribbon cable which I thought would connect the LCD to the board. The LCD fits into the frame OK but the LCD end of the ribbon doesn't fit into the connector on the LCD.

I attach photos of the motherboard end of the cable I bought (mbconnector.jpg), which fits correctly into the motherboard, and the other end of the cable which doesn't fit into the LCD (LCDEnd.jpg). I also attach a photo of the LCD input (Screen input.jpg).

This is the laptop specs page:
https://www.msi.com/Laptop/GE75-Raid...176b3e5fS7gKgl

This is the LCD which I have technical details page:
https://www.panelook.com/B173HAN05.1...ter_44168.html

This is the cable I have:
https://es.aliexpress.com/item/40003...176b3e5fS7gKgl

The dimensions of the LCD are right, the refresh rate (300 hz) appears to be supported according to the MSI page (though I'm not 100% sure), and the resolutions match.

Could I get some help with whether I need another LCD at this point, or whether the B173HAN05.1 will work if I find the right cable?

If I find a way to connect the MB to this LCD will it likely work?

Thanks for any help.

You could try an adapter http://forum.notebookreview.com/thre....834742/page-4 .If you find one on aliexpress make sure to read the reviews,i have no idea if they`re any good or not.

I think the problem with an adapter might be that there isn't enough space under the bezel. It's tight as it is. I might try though if I can't find a cable (and if anyone can confirm here if that LCD would work if connected using the right cable).

That one's for the GE75 10SFS-067 whereas my laptop model is the GE75 10SF-035, but I'm getting the impression it would be compatible.

If it is, then comparing with the screen I have already bought, it has the same resolution, number of pins, basic signal type (edp), number of lanes, dimensions, etc, but a couple of differences:

The monitor I have bought is listed as:
144hz.
3.3v(typ.) input voltage. I am guessing typ. means typical.
eDP1.3.

That monitor is listed as:
240hz.
3.4v (typ.) vs. for mine.
eDP1.4.

https://www.panelook.com/B173HAN05.1...ter_44168.html

I have also just been told by MSI support that the original monitor for my model is a LQ173M1JW05, which according to one taobao page is compatible with the B173HAN05.0, which is also eDP1.4.

Anyone know if eDP1.3 and eDP1.4 are compatible, and if anything is likely to explode if I connect them?
