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!

The Hinge on Compact Presario V5000 Notebooks


If everything works, but the hinges are just damaged, they can be replaced. I see them all the time on eBay for between $20 and $50. You can try to replace them yourself, but I'd recommend a professional perform the repair, as you could cause further damage if you don't know what you're doing :)

Hope this helps!

How do I replace a Compaq Presario V5000 laptop keyboard?


You need a flat bladded thin screw driver to prise off the long cover the runs along the top of the keyboard and just below the screen. Make sure you remove any screws at the back of the screen hinges, and along the top above the battery housing (you need a small posidrive screwdriver for this). You will find there is a screw on the underside of the laptop that holds the keyboard in place from underneath, plus two or three very small screws on the top at the screen end. When all the screws are removed you can lift the keyboard up from the screen end and pull (gently) away from the touch-pad end. Tilt it up and you will see the keyboard data ribbon, don't twist it or pull it as you will damage it.

hope this helps

Compaq Presario Laptop (M2000 series) hinge


Very easy to replace if you can get new ones. Remove the batter and remove all screws under the battery as well as all the screws to the right and left of the battery location (3 on the V5000). Now back on the other side gently pry up on the portion of the "keyboard area" directly above the keyboard. A small keyboard will make this handy

Now you'll see screws holding the monitor the the notebook. Remove those screws and the monitor will be freed. Be careful with the wireless antenna wires and xvga cable. Now remove all the little rubber pads from the monitor and you'll find all the screws underneath. Remove those and you'll see how the hinges are attached to the monitor. There are three screws directly to the screen and a few to the frame on each side. Remove those and the hinges will come off.

Replacement hinges are available from HP's website for about $50 + shipping but call them up and give them *hit and see if they'll help you out.
