I own a acer aspire v7 481p. Recently, It's touchscreen (Digitizer) broke, and I was getting ghost touches all over the screen. For a temporary fix, Ive disabled the HID Touch in device manager, however my question is.

Is it possible to :-

1) Remove the digitizer from the LCD and use the laptop as it is ?

2) Replace LCD only, from website like (


3) Upgrade the LCD and replace it, with a screen from Acer Aspire V7 482p (Full HD Matte IPS), from




They both use the exact same connector, and exact same frame..

Guy here says, he upgraded a screen without any problems, but Id rather ask the question here in acer community




Right now, the digitizer forms the black bezel in the front of the laptop. But I found  this

It seems to be the front bezel of V5-472, which according to the seller is compatible with V7-481P, as they share identical structure.

Now, Is it possible to somehow remove the digitizer, and use that product to make my laptop look like a V5-472 ?
