I have a laptop with a Passive DSTN screen which although works is a bit blotgy. If I was to obtain a good used TFT screen to fit, of the same dimension (12.5ins) would it necessarily have to be of the same make and model or just the same size

it will need to be same make and same model.

prob easier and cheaper to buy a 2nd hand entire laptop with tft screen. or simply replace laptop. screens are normallyl not interchangeable - get them via broken laptops.

The backlight on my laptop screen has blown. Repairs and parts not cheap. So now it is a desktop attached to a cheap 2nd hand 15' CRT monitor.

A DSTN laptop uses different electronics (ie video card) so you would not be able to just swap in a TFT screen.
