Getting hinges replaced is pretty trivial — basically just open up the cover of Latitude’s LCD monitor, take the old hinges out, and put the new ones back in. A few screws need to be unscrewed/screw back in along the process

You can get the stuff off your old drive in your broken laptop... Well thats if it isn't faulty, but if OK, you can take the drive out and connect it up via an inexpensive SATA to USB adapter, then you can just use the drive as normal drive. You connect up the drive & plug it into a USB port & it will show up in MY Computer as a drive.

Copy the downloaded files and install them on your computer.
