If your computer is still in warranty you can call the manufacturer of your laptop if its not try to check with google. Or visit them on their wer sites there's a part there for supports and downloads.
Most of the time you can find a replacement through Ebay, however, the repair can be kinda tricky. If you post the model number, I can try to find more information and maybe a link to a new hinge for you.
It sounds like your “Suspend Switch” is acting up. The Inspiron 1501 uses a mechanical switch to detect if the lid of the system is open or closed. A camber is built into the hinge of the system that activates the suspend switch plunger as the LCD is lowered to the closed position. If the switch is broken or nonfunctional, then it can be replaced separately. It is located under the hinge cover next to the right hinge on the system.
