I hope to do this you will extra-ordinary careful in handling or removing the components process


1. You will have to loosen the screw at the back of the system and then raise the keyboard up gently then you will see a transparent cabling nylon at the back of the keyboard remove it from the motherboard gently and put that aside after that you remove the bracelet and the palmrest so then you will find tiny screw holding the hinges to the screen then gently loosen the screw and bring the hinges out then follow the removing skill to replace them back

2. If you need any assistance then post it again.

The left hand hinge cover has broken..can I get a replacement?


You will have to return the laptop to where you bought it and tell them what you want done. They will send it off to the manufactuer and replace the broken hinge, but you may be charged a small fee.

Broken hinge


I'd be frustrated as well. Fortunately, your Inspiron is still under warranty - contact Dell. They may send a tech to fix, or you may need to send back the laptop to them to be fixed.

You do not need to dismantle to base, you have some star screws under the battary and one either side that loosens the small panel near the screen (where the power button is). The screen cover has screws under the plastic covers then just unclips, be gentle. after that it is self evident

How do I replace the LCD screen hinge on my IBM T41?


I'm sure you could get these hinges from IBM, but no idea as to their cost. They are available on e-bay for $8-$35 (depending on whether you want 1 or a set) plus $8-$10 shipping.

As far as replacement. You will have to remove the Top cover assembly from the base of the PC. If you need help with that, just let me know and I'll talk you through that.

To replace the hinge, you will have to disassemble the Top cover assembly.The screws that you will need to remove are covered by small black adhesive covers. There are 3 round ones along the bottom of the bezel, 2 square ones up at the top of the bezel (to the left of the white LED keyboard light, and 6 (trapezoidal shaped) on the outside of the cover (3 on each side). Carefully remove those covers and the screws that are under the covers. Keep track of where the screws should go back in.

The actual bezel is held into the top cover with some internal snaps. Start at one of the corners, run a knife blade along the seam (between the cover and bezel) and you will hear each fastener "snap" as you slide the blade past it. Once the bezel is loose, lift it off of the LDC screen. There is one additional screw that is located up in the upper right hand corner. That one will need to be removed, also.

Gently lift the right hand side of the LCD assembly a couple of inches and place something of appropriate size to hold it in the raised position. You will see 2 additional screws that hold the hinge to the LCD assemble. Remove those and the old hinge will come right off.

Position the new hinge and replace the two screws that you had just removed. Reverse the removal sequence to reassemble the display.

Before you start snapping the bezel back into place, check to make sure that the two cover catches (those hook things, up at the top of the LCD assembly) are both operational. The link going to the left hand one tends to easily fall off.

This procedure should take in the neighborhood of 45 minutes to an hour.

If you need any additional information, please feel free to ask. If this information has assisted you in the resolution of you problem, please return here to give my assistance an appropriate final rating.

Thanks you, and have a super day!
