question about laptop screens

i have a hp pavillion DV5-1233se and i broke my screen and was wondering if i could use this screen with it
http://cgi.ebay.com/HP-PAVILLION-DV5...item3ca1f024d1

Will that work with it or no because its HP PAVILLION DV5-1113US instead of 1233 se

Be careful with Pavillion and their "screens breaking" the DV series has a habit of their on board GPUs burning out due to massive overheating. Ive seen this happen to many Palvillion DV series laptops including my own.

My questions to you sir are this. Does the laptop run hot? How old is it?
DV Series screens go in around the time the laptop is about a year and a half old.

You could of course attempt to replace the screen but its best that you get a screen for the specific model you have. Laptops even though theyre under the same brand and series vary in structure from model to model so the mounting and wiring between both screens could be different.

If screen replacement works, yay, if not its the GPU

tried but there were none to be found unless i ordered one from best buy ($600 for just the screen) or sent it to HP ($430) but i found the screen is compatible so i saved myself some dough
