Yes it is absolutely possible, if you can get an LED screen with the same model number as your LCD screen.

if the screen size is 15.4" then 5k will be ok 4 it. if it is tokunbo then it will be from another hp 630 laptop, but it is a new one then it will possibly be from China, my advice pls go for tokunbo. if the case is not broken then buy only the screen cos casing will incure additional cost.

thanks so much for replying my post...now i will go for tokunbo screen. I heard that "laptop case MAY look new again via spraying". Is this true? If yes, can you advise me to go for spraying my pc other than buying a new case?

if you get good a technician that will spray the laptop and then polished it afterwards, it will be ok. but the truth is that after sometime it will still peel off, but for the main time it will serve you well. The permanent solution will be to change the entire casing and put a very clean tokunbo casing, but also you have to shine your eyes so that they don't sell a polished one to you as tokunbo. You know some of these business men can be terribly annoying.

I think this a high quality screen (15.6" widescreen HD display (1366x768)) the screen is some how scarce in the market now, hence it might be a bit expensive but i think a budget of 15k shuld be enough to replace it. iF If you are in Lagos, you can get the screen in computer village
