    well,

    I use the ide-connector (haven't finished the display yet though) and the connector stays on..
    I just make sure there's not any stress on the cable which could loosen the cable.
    2 drops off hot-glue (on the short sides off the connector) does the job. Pretty firm connection..

    maybe, (i don't know how much you shaved off) if you shave down the connector all the way untill you see the pins in the connector it will stay on..

    Good luck !

    I shaved down to the connectors and I had to push on the side were the backlight is to get the back light to work. I am not going to solder my next one. I am not very good at it so I dont want to mess another one up. I will try to find an ide connector that will work for me.

    maybe a floppy connector will do,
    they have the same pin-distance as the ide.

    If you can't find a decent connector in your toolbox, you might take the display to an electronics store and ask if the have a good connector. I think they will have one !

    I will do that. I have to see if I am going to be able to get a free lcd screen from datainternational first and if not I will buy another one from EIO.
