Broken hinges on a laptop

Have you broken your laptop hinges? Does your screen need to be propped up?
If you answered yes to either question you should know there is a quick fix to your dilemma.
You will need velcro stripes and a brace (you can buy one for $1.50 at a hardware store).




Attach velcro strip on the lower back of the laptop then place brace behind the laptop and use the velcro to keep the brace in place.
Your screen will now be secure.

Yes, if you can find one. I would suggest you look for a broken one (spares or repairs).

These WEB sites shows how.

broken laptop screen HP Pavilion ZV6000


I have a HP Pavilion zv6000 laptop too, and I have the same problem. A year ago, the screen was getting loose and finally it just broke. Won't stand up. I've been propping it up against a wall for a year. I can see what is wrong: my laptop has gotten so hot that the back of the laptop where the hinges are has warped and ruined the hinges. Do you notice that? The split in the seem and the actual bend of the plastic? Anyway, the computer itself works perfectly. I was going to buy new hinges and replace them myself, but it was too much of a hassle, and I needed a new laptop anyway. The hinges are inexpensive. And the laptop isn't TOO difficult to take apart (search for the manual. it's easy to find). I took it apart with my Grandpa, and he's old, and I'm a girl. (okay, sexist, gender...ist.) I actually received a new laptop as a gift. Luckily. No solution, other than replacing hinges. I just wanted to let people know I too had the same problem.
