The best thing to do is go ahead and remove the display panel. You are going to have to do it anyway. Look for a replacement of the screen model itself. There should be a part number on the back assigned by the screen maker. Do not search by laptop model. That way, you get more options for the replacement and usually a better price.

 

Post back if you need more help.

 

Here are the two options by HP part number:

 

15.6-in, FHD, LED, AntiGlare display panel 665335-001

15.6-in, HD, LED, BrightView display panel 665334-001

 

The FHD screen is 1900 x 1080 and the HD screen is 1366 x 768 resolution. The high-res screen is "matte" or antiglare and the low-res screen is very shiny in appearance. I doubt they are interchangeable; you have to replace with the correct screen.

 

Official specs say you have the 1366 x 768 version.

This is an eBay auction for the whole assembly

I have the 1366x768 resolution screen. So should I buy that one?

See above. I added to the post. Yes you need to buy the 1366 x 768. These have become commodity items, and if you pull the screen and search by the screen number you will find a replacement as low as maybe $60.
