Yes, if you can find one. I would suggest you look for a broken one (spares or repairs).

HP Pavilion ZE 2315 laptop with a black screen. First the screen image locked and now the screen will not even come on. Was told it's the GPU. How can I fix this?

Remove the screen and look for broken wire/s where the screen part hinges to the rest of the laptop. I repaired this very same problem last week. Provided the screen is not damaged, this may be your problem. Just remove the small, circular, rubber pads that hide the Phillips head screws (also provides for soft closings )and remove the screws. Use your fingers to pry off the plastic piece around the screen. Inspect the wires leading from the keyboard to the screen, and if broken (probably in the hinged area), solder and tape it

Our HP G60-120US display works properly on start-up and in certain positions. But if the screen is moved slightly, the image will begin scrolling rapidly an uncontrollably. It sometimes works to move the...

It sounds like it's a loose wire. Your best bet would be to take it apart and take a look, that would also give you a good idea if there's something broken in there.

Check your bezel for screws and take them out. Usually they're underneath little cushions, so you'll have to peel them off. Take out the screws, then you should be able to use a screwdriver to pop the bezel off. It's kindof difficult, because the snaplocks are tight. Try to be forceful yet gentle (oxymoron, I know) so you don't break too many of them. They're fairly robust, I don't think I've ever broken one, but you want to be careful anyway. Once you have the bezel off, you should be able to take a look at the wires and cables to see if any are broken, cracked, or loose. You may also need to take off the top cover of the PC to check that as well. Usually this is held in place by screws on the bottom of the laptop, as well as more snaplocks.

There is a very good instructional for taking everything apart complete with pictures located here.

How do i replace the hinges on my hp g60 laptop have a spare one for parts

You will have to remove all the screws, and then the keyboard so you can access the screen hinges.

My laptop display becomes unusable when moving the display. There is only one angle that the display will work

This indicates that the wire bundle running through the hinge has been compromised. Some wire has frayed apart and is making intermittent contact with itself or the lid movement is causing the wire bundle to pull on one of the video connectors.

In order to fix this problem, you will need to remove the notebook's front hinge cover & check the bundle of wires connecting the motherboard to the LCD screen. If this bundle of wires is damaged, then you will have to get it replaced.

I need the LCD removal procedure for an HP G60.


(Scroll the page down)

2) Also; Which one of the HP G60's?
HP G60-100 series? HP G60 200 series? HP G60 400 series? HP G60 500 series? HP G60 600 series?

It's on the bottom of the laptop in the white Service Tag. P/N = Product Number

Disregard if you are aware of the following;

1) Remove ALL electrical sources from the laptop.
AC adapter (Charger), and Battery

2) Use Anti-Static Precautions. I repeat. Use Anti-Static Precautions.

3) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws, and DO NOT mix them up!

There are different types of screws. Some look VERY similar to each other, of the different types.
If you use the wrong screw it may bind halfway into the threaded hole.
Chances are of removing it, without it breaking are very slim.
If you do get it removed, the threads in the laptop may be ruined, and so will the screw threads.

Basic procedure:

A) Remove the WLAN Module Cover: (WLAN compartment cover. 1 screw)
Disconnect the two antenna wires from the WLAN Module.

[The Black wire antenna lead is connected to the WLAN Module MAIN terminal.
The White wire (Cable) antenna lead is connected to the WLAN Module AUX terminal.
Just in case you forget when assembling ]

I don't know the exact product number of your G60 laptop, so I cannot give you exact info on where the WLAN compartment is. Most generally it is in the middle of the laptop, next to the battery compartment. This is GENERALLY)

B) Remove the Keyboard:
Laptop upside down, Closed, Front facing you. Look down in the Battery compartment. (Cover has been removed when you removed the Battery)

There are 3 Philips screws down in the compartment to remove, in order to remove the Keyboard.
One to the Left, one to the Right, and one in the Middle.

Turn the laptop over. Front towards you. Open the cover. Open the cover as far as possible.
There is a Tab for the Keyboard to release, on EACH side of the Keyboard.
Two Tabs.

These PLASTIC tabs, (Use care), hold the Keyboard in place. They need to be released.
They are in-between the second key, and third key down on the Left side, and on the Right side.
They are hard to see at first. They are in-between the Keys, and the inner edge of the laptop.
They need to be pressed down in order to release the Keyboard.

A flat tip screwdriver, or butterknife looks to be the optimal tool of choice, but I caution against using one.
One, you don't want to use a magnetized screwdriver.
Two, they're both made of metal, and can easily damage the laptop if you slip. (Plus it will scratch the plastic)
I would use a thick guitar pick, or some object that is plastic, and similar.

Once these tabs are depressed the Keyboard will slightly pop-up.
Use care, and lift Keyboard up at an angle, (45 degrees), towards the LCD screen.
Back down, front up.
(The front of the Keyboard faces the LCD screen)
There are 4 plastic tabs that protrude from the back of the Keyboard, and you don't want to break them.
They ease up out of the Palmrest Cover.

You have a choice here;
One, lay the Keyboard back towards you, so that you can remove the Keyboard Cover.
Two, remove the Keyboard to get it completely out of the way.

There will be a cable attached to the Keyboard. A wide thin cable made of plastic, (Ribbon Cable), and has wires in it. There is a ZIF connector which attaches it to the motherboard. (Zero Insertion Force)
It is a white long connector, and is composed of two parts.

If you look close you will see a parting line on the connector. The connector separates, BUT, does not come apart. The ribbon cable slides out of the connector.
Use your fingernails to separate the connector.
Reversal of these steps is to gently line up the ribbon cable into the ZIF connector, insert it to the proper depth, and close the ZIF connector.

C) Keyboard Cover:
The keyboard Cover is a rectangular frame which surrounds the Keyboard.
Laptop upside down, Front facing you. On the very outside Corners of the laptop, on the Battery compartment side, are two screws to remove. Philips head screws. One in each corner.

There are two Philips head screws to remove in the Battery compartment. These are identified by a Triangle icon.
Laptop right-side up, Front facing you.
There is a ribbon cable which attaches to the Keyboard Cover. It goes to the Power On button.
This has to be disconnected.

Slide the Keyboard Cover towards the LCD screen, the lift up to remove.

D) Display Assembly Removal:
The two Antenna leads are pulled up through the laptop. I should state EASE them up out of the laptop.
They come up out of the laptop on the Left corner where the Keyboard was.
Disconnect them from the mounting clip.
Make sure they are out of the routing channel.

Disconnect the Display Panel Cable from the motherboard.
This cable's connector should be on the Left side, is white, and long. It just unplugs.

Disconnect the Microphone Cable. Goes across the laptop, and is parallel to the LCD screen. Remove it from the mounting clips first, then disconnect the connector.

Disconnect the CAPS LOCK LED from it's mounting clips on the top cover.

Remove the 4 Philips head screws from the hinges. 2 per hinge.
Remove the Display Assembly.

My HP G60 is saying plugged in not charging its only 4 months old

Its a very common problem in hp laptops. When the laptop is very overheated it automatically stops battery charging. I had same problem, i consulted hp service center. They made a BIOS update and suggested me to use Laptop Cooler(Heat pad) and my problem was solved.
Also i mostly keep my laptop in Power Saver Mode to keep it cool.
Hope this will help.....cheers:)

HP pavilion tx 2130 screen becoming loose on hinge, in open/close movement. (swivel function unaffected)

In the screen section after remove the front plastic around the LCD you will see some screws holding the LCD display in place. Sometimes these get loose over time. If you can locate and remove the screws " usually under little pads or stickers " and pull off the plastic case around the LCD screen " usually held on by some clips as well " you will easily have access to the hinge screws from there just tighten them down and make sure there no broken off the housing for the screen. Then place the front panel back on and screw is back on and you should be good to go again,

HP Pavilion dv5000 screen black - related to broken hinge?

The ribbon that connects the lcd to the laptop circut runs through the hinged area, so when you moved it, the connector came out. Unless you feel confident in taking the frame off and replacing the connector it may be time to get it fixed if you have a warantee left from HP, if you want to try it yourself there are pictures on the site that you can look at, I can give youa link for them or you can just look up your Hp repair manual from the vast knowledge base on file
