    LVDS/eDP question

    kwyjibo

      For the LCD/engineering experts

       

      When I open the intel graphics control panel on my latitude e6440 notebook it shows the LCD as an embedded display port device. However, my notebook uses a LP140WH2-TLTB panel which is a 40 pin LVDS display NOT an eDP display. The port on the motherboard side is also labeled LVDS and has a 40-pin connector. I was wondering why there is a discrepancy...

       

      Some possible explanations I've thought of:

      1) the control panel is wrong and my notebook motherboard can only run LVDS

      2) LVDS is being run over the eDP connection

       

      Anyone else have any other thoughts? I was hoping to run a eDP panel on this notebook in the future but it looks like that may not be possible.
