The left hinge on my MX6436 gateway laptop is cracked. How can I fix it?It is split from the screw in the back out to one side and making it difficult to open and close.


If you have to ask "HOW" to disassemble your laptop, in order to remove and replace the hinge, then STOP, and take the computer to a qualified technician, who can safely make the repair.

This isn't for a Gateway laptop, granted. But all laptops fall into a general replacement like this.

Hinges Broken


From my experience working with Gateway repairs in a service center, average price on hinge kits are usually around the $125USD mark, if you do it yourself. Of course if you were to bring the unit to an authorized service center to have a technician repair it then there is labour charges on top of that (which will be variable from shop to shop). A better resource to look at directly though would be here, you can probably get some cheaper prices on parts for this model of notebook.

Gateway left hinge broke


Definately an easy fix.

I suggest looking on eBay for a donor chassis.
Sometimes they can be had relatively cheap CLICK HERE (this one has both hinges broken however) - and sometimes just the parts you are looking for are available CLICK HERE (this is for the RHS one though).

An entire donor PC is adviseable, because usually the repair is not just the hinge that broke - as the rest of the lid is plastic!

Once the trim above the keyboard is pried off, you will see the monitor cable, and hinge screws.

The trim around the monitor must be dis-assembled and pried into 2 parts.
Then the hinge & Support are either screwed into the side of the screen, or the back of the lid.

Most look like this...

Replace reverse of removal.

HERE is a link that will describe it better and give you a visual reference.
You are interested in step #s 7, 8, 11, 12

Once the screen is free of the chassis - its time to remove the little rubber scerw covers in the lid, and disassemble.

Good Luck!! Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Hinges Broken


Go to EBAY or wherever and get the hinges and replace them yourself.Its fairly simple, mostly requiring a small 4way screwdriver and taking your time doing it.A repair shop will probably charge too much for such a simple repair.Before replacing them try to put a little silicon lubricant on them as to prevent future breakage.Also when you open your laptop always lift the screen in the middle or lifting from both sides keeping stress off the hinges.
