QUICK METHOD

1) Hinges supplied on ebay at about £15 a set. Non original parts seem fine.
A mini screwdriver set of decent quality with a magnetic feature helps & Duck (duct) tape.

2) Switch off and remove from mains source. Also flick battery holding switch and push out main
battery. Remove small Phillips screws under battery.

3) You can try the 'quick' method and not undo the whole of the base screws BUT be very careful
as you work not to damage the 2 sets of wires passing through the LH and RH hinges.

4) Pry off the long back top cover near hinges which has the start button on it and 'Presario' written
on. You do this by pushing from front just under F2 F3 SCROLL and PAUSE keys as well as from
the back. If you hold the keys down as you pry this helps. Use a thin blade of driver but be careful
not to split the thin plastic. TAKE YOUR TIME - BE FIRM BUT DON'T FORCE. Work round it
and it will eventually pop out upwards.

5) You have now access to the hinge cover(s) so remove these and also offending hinge(s) from main
body.
Don't let the lid sprain the hinges even further or break as existing good one! A temporary
hinge of Duck taping lid to base may help.

6) Take out the little grey rubber plugs from the screen side of the lid. They can be stuck back after.
Unscrew silver phillips screws (6 or 8 I think).

7) The plastic front of lid should now pry off and whole top opens up to reveal the side hinge
fastening. Unscrew little black screws and keep safe. Then carefully extract hinge.

8) Refitting basically just reverse of above. Hinges are naturally stiff to hold the screen so open
them up to the best angle to get all hinge screws in. A magnetic screwdriver does help!
Also, if both hinges have gone do one THEN the other to avoid pulling the lid cables too much.

I did mine, hinges fine and laptop still works!

Were do i get a la-3181p v5000


Ebay. Any V5000 full-featured AMD motherboard will work. There are several with very minor internal updates that really have no functional effect. Reconditioned is as good as new. Look at the connectors on the seller's photo to be sure you are getting the correct PC board. There are many confused eBay listings.
If you buy a used or reconditioned board, check the USB connectors before installing it. USB abuse and damage is a frequent problem.
Buying Hint: You may find that a damaged V5000 with a good motherboard is a better buy.
Good luck.

Compaq, actually HP, should have the drivers you need based on your exact model number. If your model is exactly a v5000, consider looking here for various drivers needed for XP and your machine

Hello,

Please try to plug the power cord into the source and used DC power source. Let the laptop charge for 5 - 10 minutes then after the given time please turn on the laptop. If it does not work extend the time from5 -10 to 15 - 30 minutes then repeat the stpes again. If it does not turn on then please try to check if the battery is charging. Then if all the procedure you have already perform and still no positive result then i advice you to please find a computer technician in your please and let that person fix the problem for you.

Thanks
