Components of Laptop Display

The laptops have some social display features which cannot be found in the traditional desktops. Here, one can have all type of screen sizes which can vary from the 10 inches to the 15.6 inches. So, one can buy the laptop with same specifications and with some different displays as it fits their needs. Because, it might happen that the gamer need some big displays where they can play the games while watching everything around. The students might need some medium sizes displays since they don't need to stare at the screen for many hours; they just have their focus on the main screen. The laptop display technologies have changed very much during the past few years and now people have some new technologies which can be used by them. Following are some of the display functions and the features;


The types of the displays which one would find these days in the market are as follows;

LCD: The displays in the laptop that one would mostly find are LCDs. They are the liquid crystal displays. One would find some small pieces of the liquid crystals inside then which have some certain colour. When the light passes through the display, then those colours can be seen by the user. The LCD can provide one many of the advantages when used in some portable device. The weight is very light and one can carry it very easily. Of one owns the laptop or some of the other devices, and then it is very important part of it. Also, when compared to some other options, it can have use some really less power. Also, the cost of production of these LCD is now very less. So if one is engaged in LCD manufacturing or wants to buy the LCD, it has some good news for him. The quality may vary and the highest quality can be pretty expensive as well. Also, the colour display that this LCD has is actually made of some liquid crystals.

LED: One would find the LED having some flat panel display and it uses the LED backlighting instead if the cold cathode fluorescent. These are mostly used by the LCDs. The LED is made by the semiconductors and it has some advantage, that is, that the material of the LED is really durable When the energy is passed through the LED, the liquid crystal start vibrating an emit some radiant lights that we see in the form of coloured display. One would find that the LED lights can be dimmed by applying some pulse width modulation for the supplying of current, hence the LED's backlight can become off and it can happen very fast. If the frequency of this dimming pulse is very low or the one using the LED is pretty sensitive to the flickers, then one might experience some eye strain or the discomfort. SO, one can test this by waving his hand while being in front of the screen. One can also deduct those flickers by setting the display to its full brightness. But, this might reduce the image quality and the power consumption would be increased. Another best thing about the LED is that the screen is really clear and the images which are shown are so vibrant. Most of the gaming laptop contains LED and those people who like to work with the visuals, prefer this amazing coloured screen. LED consume more power than the LCD and they are little bit expensive than the LED. One would find the normal ranged LED for around $80. Also, LEDs do not emit too much heat so they are safe to use.

OLED: On the mobile devices, that displays that one would find of some really high quality is, the OLED. It is the organic light emitting diode. These OLED displays are the ones which use chemicals and then the light are produced which one can see. This technology is rally great for some portable devices. So, there is much space inside those portables devices which can be saved by one, with the power that is associated to it. The OLED displays are actually very beautiful. Also, one would find them pretty crisp. They are so clear and the colours emerging from it are so fascinating. For the small systems for gaming, this serves as the perfect technology since the refresh rates it has is pretty high. So if one is interested in playing games which contain some really good action, then this is the right choice for them. These LEDs also have some very low power consumption. When there is the black colour shown on the screen, one can be sure that no power is actually being used here. All the advantages are really good but the OLED has got some limitations as well. Like, this technology is emerging one and now it is only used in the portable devices. The cost of these OLED are pretty high so one would have to save up to get hands on this technology. For many people, the differences between the new versions of the LCD and the OLED aren't that much. So, everyone actually tries to go with the option which costs less.

Plasma: plasma is actually the technology which is flat panel. It has been prevailing in the market since long time. The displays of the plasma screens are so brilliant and there are many of the displays which contain this screen. There is some limitation of this technology, that is, that this technology actually consumes lot of technology so one might avoid having this technology in the laptop which mainly runs with the batteries. The normal LCD that are being used by one, totally take around 25% of the electricity and the battery power. If one uses the plasma, then it can go too much high. Basically, many people would love having this amazing technology on their laptops especially if one is engineer. Also, they would need to re-engineer this technology if they have to work with it. There is some strong need to reduce the power drain which is done by this technology and the amount of power that is consumed by it. But the great news is that if they get successful in achieving the technology which contains some low energy consumption, then technology would be used in the mobile devices as well. Hence, one would not have to use the expensive technologies like OLED and the manufacturers would have some choice as well rather than just having the OLED technology as the best one. But still, Plasma has not been put into the laptops, especially because many of the laptops are run of the battery are there are early run on the power. If this technology comes there, then the battery would be finished soon and people would have to carry many batteries at one time.

Wi-Fi Antenna Connector/Placement:

The amazing thing that one would learn about the displays is that, these days, displays are not just used for the traditional method of showing the output generated by the computer. Also, these displays are being used as the portable antenna for the wireless connections. If one has been connected to the 802.11 network, then there is two of the antenna that would be found by one. One of those antennas is the Bluetooth antenna. If some computer has the Bluetooth device, which is located inside the computer, then it also can work as the antenna for receiving those signals of Wi-Fi. The Bluetooth antenna actually goes inside the display device and hence the display device doesn't just stay as the display device, but it acts as some wireless network receiver. Also, someone might consider that putting the antenna might not be the good thing inside the display, but this is what makes some perfect sense. There is one thing, which is the highest point of the portable device so it is actually the very good place for the antenna to be. When the laptop is opened, it is the position which is actually at the highest point. So, the antenna wire can be run as high as one wants and one can do this himself as well. This way, one would be able to get some really good signals which would help him have the best internet speed as they want.

Inverter and its functions:

One should know that the computer doesn't work on the direct current. Many of the appliances that we see in the today's atmosphere do not work with the direct current. The reason behind this is that when we use direct current, it might happen that there is some problem with the fuse in the power supply. If that happens, then the current might flow through the wires in some big amount and it can burn up the machines. O to protect that, in computers, one would find that there is the inverter. It is located at the back of the computer so that when the electric current flows through this, the current gets converted into and alternate current and also, the inverter helps the current to flow in some steady shape. If the inverter doesn't work so well, then it is for sure that the current flown would not be steady and there can be some serious problem that can occur to the computer. So, one should know the location of the inverter. These inverters are located at the back of the displays of the laptops. The inverter takes the power then empowers the fluorescent lights so that we can have the proper display of the computer. So, if it happens that one turns on the computer and then computer doesn't get on, or if someone looks closely, he finds out that the LCD has some problems and if the information is being shown, it is faint, then it is surely the problem with the converter that it is not supplying the power to the backlight properly and it is not getting lit.


Backlight, is actually the light which illunminates on behind the computer screen. Everyone knows about the challenges which can be facing when buying the any of these displays. One of them is the black levels. One can get them because one would have to have some backlight which keeps shining at the end. So, having the dark colour can be really difficult specially, when it comes to have the dark black colour on the screen. So, if one is using the LCD, he would get some problems while having the colour match. Also, the LCD's backlight is required so one can see the colours clearly. If the backlight is experiencing some problems, then one would have to take the whole deice apart and then fix that backlight that is attached behind it. Sometimes, it becomes even difficult to replace something when someone wants to get into the LCD.

Now, as one can observe, there are many of the components of the laptop. They all have some various types and each of the types have some characteristics. So, one can learn about these types to use this data for the practical implementation. Like, as one knows that the plasma displays can have lots of the consumption of the electricity, then he would avoid that display. Also, if one knows about the advantages of the LED, and knows that it is safe to sue, then one would surely go for the LED and buy the computers which have the LED screen so that the image that appear on the computer become really bright. Also, with the help of knowing that antenna is actually in the display of the laptop, one can be assure of the fact that he is having the antenna at the best position and he is going to catch the maximum signals. Another thing is that one can know about the importance of the back light. One can know that how the backlights can be used and when one turns on the commuter and sees some really dim display, he can know that it is sue to the backlight. Hence he can repair that himself or can take to the laptop repair shop.
