The Display connector on the Laptop is important as it controls the display and affect functioning of QE/CI.
Earlier, the eDP port were used. Now, the LVDS and Display port are used.

So here's a quick guide to find out the connector on a Laptop.

Using Windows
This method needs a copy of Windows installed with the Intel HD Graphics driver.

1. Open Intel HD Graphics Control Panel
2. Click on Options and Support
3. From the drop down menu, select the display, i.e "Built-in Display"
4. In the Connector Type, you can see the type. For e.g. LVDS
5. The other information such as Serial no., Resolution etc. are displayed.
