Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

To your concern; hinge repair is relatively easy, what is more challenging is opening the lid and figuring out how to improve the hinge action to reduce the stiffness of closing the lid. For a pictorial illustration on how to open the lid cover to expose the hinge, please reference this page. For a generic how-to on hinge repair, pls check this out.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

You can do multiple things:
1.) try defragmenting the hard-drive
2.) you can increase the amount of ram if not already maxed out
3.) update the drivers
4.) If all else fails there's always Linux

It is an acer issue. Thier webcams have lots of issues. One suggested fix is to check if there are any files in the pictures folder, if there are remove them. I know it sounds weird, but it works for some models

Cracked front cover at hinges


What does work is this-
Superglue the cracked lid as you WILL have one of these if you are reading this post- dont rush, I did about 10 glue applications over a few days to let it set correctly.
Next remove the offending hinges. You will see to spring/pressed steel curves in the body of the hinge, Next hack saw one (the outer is easier to get to) of these off, this frees the hinge up very well. Worked for me so give it a try
