Question about Computers & Internet
How do I remove the laptop hinge so that I can replace the display. This 6 yr old model was "fancy" and the speakers make screen replacement difficult. How do I undo the hinge?

I have a problem with my hp laptop monitor's hinges, could you link where you were able to purchase those hinges?
Also, make sure you monitor's ribbon cable isn't missing any wires or that all of those wires are fully contacting.

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.

Anything cosmetic is never covered under warrany unless there is a recall from the company and I don't remember hearing any recalls from Acer recently.
Only thing I can suggest is to get a hold of Acer and explain the situation and see if threre was or is a recall on your model.
My best solution, go to this page:
Either fill out the form or call the number and see what they can do.
Let me know what they say and If they can't help at all then there is other routes we can try to take to keep costs down.

This is the worst solution I've ever heard. This guy is trying to steer you wrong I'm pretty sure. There is zero point in removing all the screws from under the batter/ zero point to removing the area around the power button. Absolute BS. The only part to remove is the part just above the top of the keyboard (silver strip with some black). Then by removing that you can pry the swivel black plastic cover off. Whatever you do.. do not follow Scott's writeup here. I'm telling you. It's sad it's stayed up so long.. so had to warn.
