can i change my Display High-Definition WLED (1600x900) to FHD with 3D

  • hello every one :)

    can any one here help please

    i bough alienware 17x R3  but i didnt noticed that the Display High-Definition WLED (1600x900) so its not FHD and not support the 3d

    can i change the display screen to FHD with 3d or it will not support it .

    i saw some sellers in ebay sell the screen

    if i buy it and install it will it work?

    thank you all

  • If you recently bought it, you maybe able to return it and reorder with thr 3d screen.

    You need a compatible graphics card and screen.

  • i bought it around 2 month ago..... so i guess i cant reorder it.

    i have the nividia gtx 560

    so, i guess am stuck with it :(

    thnx for the help

  • You can always try your luck and push you thought it was 3d compat.

    When I bought my M18x, the order page almost guaranteed was 3D enabled, then in little tiny print on a different page it said you needed a 3d display, which the M18x can't have, so its External only, I could have complained and hassled. You can always try that the order page implied it, its quite easy to be mislead by Dell IMO.

    You could also try and push for a discount on the upgrade failing that and have Dell fit it so its still within warranty and sell the current ?
