Can parts for probook 4510 be used in 4520 models?

by Michael316497 / March 24, 2013 8:37 PM PDT

Hey everyone,

I am looking at buying a 4510 to replace my keyboard, screws and charger on my 4520.

Will the parts be compatible? I've tried googling it to no avail.

Thanks =)

Here's how I figure this out.

If I can get the service manual for each unit I can compare the FRU part numbers.

But given the price of those parts, why buy a complete 4510? Is it really less than the parts you need?
And what's to say those parts are good in the old thing?

Hey there, thanks for the reply.

The laptop is selling cheap because it doesn't have a working mouse pad and the power button isn't working so it's definitely worth it. Buying the new parts add up to be more than what they're asking and I'd have an extra battery handy with it.

As for service manuals I think maybe I've found the right page here for the 4520:

And the 4510:


Did I get that right?

Thanks heaps for any advice you can give me =)

Dive in and find the part number for the parts you want. In service tech terms that's the FRU (google FRU if you need to.)

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
